    I'd say it's the original musical made big for the film screen thing that has everyone so enamored. I can't remember the last time hollywood did an original musical with a list stars in the same kind of earnest manner.

    Of course, if they wanted to honor a delightful musical with original songs, then Moana would be a good option. But the film industry doesn't regard animated films as "serious" enough to warrant consideration for the "real" awards.

    Similarly, if you wanted a film that deals with racism on a very real level and offers a poignant social commentary, Zootopia would be a great option.

    Moana was nominated for best animated picture (as was Zootopia) and best original song (How Far I'll Go) for the Academy Awards

    Odds are Zootopia will take it.

    Zootopia was a great film, but I feel Moana was a more complete film with the music and everything. I am hoping Moana gets the nod come Oscar time.

    If you have not watched the special features on Moana you really need to. The documentary on what they did to tesearch and to integrate the Polynesian culture accurately into the movie is just amazing. Such a touching movie and a tribute to all those who had input to bringing it to the screen.

    I'm blown away by the fact that they seem to have made IRL many of the costumes and props, then animated them. That's a lot of effort to represent things accurately.

    I didn't get to see Moana when it was in wide release. My only viewing of it on a big screen was while aboard the Disney Magic at the beginning of this month. We got the blu-ray and I've watched it four times. I'm completely enamoured by this movie. It's just fantastic.
