I am objective ,George Lucas isn't (and it's understandable why he can't be objective, but I do my thinking for myself, no one else thinks for me),I repeat : There is nothing new under the sun in regards to any art (or anything else) ,almost everyone is influenced by everyone else ,and that influence always shows.

IMO ,Theodore Melifi of Hidden Figures , Paul Veerhoeven of Elle , Denzil Washington of Fences, and Asghar Farhadi of The Salesman all deserved Best Director nominations, but didn't get themOn the other hand,all five of the nominees for Best Director this year were deserving, IMO the most deserving was Mel Gibson for Hacksaw Ridge .and I'm saying this as one who was very offended by his comments in the last few years ,but I can separate the art from the artist ,and IMO Gibson was artistically the best of the five nominees:

I recently saw the last theatrical showing of Sing, which means the 2016 films I wanted to see theatrically but missed ,I'll have to catch on DVD.
Sing is IMO the best 2016 animated film ,and one of the best films of 2016 period.
The remise is simple enough ,a theater is run down ,it's Kola Bear owner Buster Moon holds a sing off to generate interest and income, the film is about the contest and the lives of the contestants which range form a bored mother and housewife (Reese Witherspoon) ,to guy whose family are criminals and want him to join the "family business"(Taron Edgerton).
The music ranges from Bing Crosby to Frank Sinatra ,The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Dolly Parton, Leonard Cohen, Elton John, Michael Jackson,to Taylor Swift.
Recommended to anyone who likes either good music or good films.
