It's a fine movie, but clearly has gotten tremendous accolades riding on the coattails of nostalgia. The way the academy received it, you'd think it was groundbreaking in the way Star Wars was in its heyday, or Avatar more recently. This it's not. It's a fine 'silent' picture, with marginally superior acting to movies done some 80 years ago, with a couple of good dance numbers, and just as simplistic a tale as was ever told those 80 years ago. Seemed to me Hollywood felt like patting itself on the back for not forgetting its roots and took the accolades way too far in the name of nostalgia.
