And the award goes to…Louisiana!

Louisiana is the new movie-making capital of the world. According to the 2013 Feature Film Production Study from FilmL.A., 18 of the 108 films released in 2013 were produced by major studios in Louisiana, and the five largest independent films of the year were also shot in the state. Louisiana topped the list in feature film and movie projects, spending and jobs, followed by the United Kingdom, Canada and California.

Once again, Louisiana proves to be a top contender for all things entertainment. The 2014 awards season has recognized Louisiana-based films and musicians with a flood of nominations and winners from the Grammys, the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Academy Awards.
