2016 American Film Institute (AFI) Awards

If you throw in Lion (which wasn't eligible here), then you have the Oscar race as it stands. Fences, Hell or High Water, La La Land, Manchester, and Moonlight are your top five, with Hacksaw Ridge, Arrival, Sully, and Silence (which is getting not bad reviews, but interesting comments about its "awards" capability) rounding out the top with Lion. Zootopia is fantastic, and should be in the race, if they decide to go with an animated film this year (although if Inside Out couldn't get in, I don't know if Zootopia can). In terms of the top ten, it is a mix of old favorites, and the hot new shows. A great list in my opinion.
