  1. I totally agree with your movie choices and was glad you included Sully because it was a pleasant surprise for me that it was so well done. This is Us is by far my favorite t.v. series and I thought The Night Of was excellent.

    • I don’t think a special effects re-imaging of a 100 year old book and multiple spinoffs gives reason to be beside the best films of the year.

  2. I’m glad you put People V. OJ up there. Very good show, but it seems like people have forgotten it’s existence.

  3. Very glad to see that AFI is recognizing both OJ Simpson themed film series. Each one had a different perspective and are compelling in their own right.

  4. Thank you AFI for including Zootopia! No other film this year has been more relevant of more deserving! When Zootopia was released no one and I mean NO ONE expected such greatness from such a modest film released outside of holiday or summer flair. Yet it became a rare critical and box-office success and is loved by millions around the world! A good film with a good message was able to take its place among so many “blockbusters” and I feel that’s a very positive thing!

    • I really hope this enhances Zootopia as a best picture nominee at the Oscars. What would make it even more extraordinary is Zootopia was released 5 days after last years Oscars.

  5. I’m so glad Zootopia made the list, it’s one of the best animated films I’ve seen years. Although not a Pixar film, it ranks with Pixar’s finest. And yes, I think it’s slightly better than Moana.

  6. A couple of “. . .eh?” choices on the list, but then again, I don’t know what I would replace them with.
    Moonlight and Zootopia are definitely the top two. You can tell those were fantastic, both critically and financially, because those are the ones the Alt-Right is/was loosing their collective s*** over. :p

  7. Zootopia’s entry made me so excited. It’s clearly the fan’s favourite and so cool AFI decides to honor that. Westworld should deserve a spot tho, but cool to see Stranger Things. Great year for entertainment.

  8. Congrats to Zootopia for being in the name of the top 10 of the American Film Institute (AFI). Zootopia is best movie in 2016 since I watch it and so this movie should be award so bad. Btw, good luck. ☺☺☺

  9. So disappointed Moana didn’t make the list. First animated movie to make the list since Toy Story 3. And this was a better movie.

  10. Why is Outlander never considered for best TV show? Constantly overlooked. Acting is exceptional and concept is something not seen before. Same shows are always on the list. Very disappointed again.
