The Best Director award is one that's always hard to give out. It's easy to give it to the director whose movie won Best Film, since theoretically that film should also be the best directed. But there are times when that's not the case. Sometimes the best film does not contain the best direction. Some of this year's films, like The Revenant or Mad Max: Fury Road, contained scenes that feel like they shouldn't have been able to be filmed. How did Alejandro G. Inarritu and George Miller pull them off? Ridley Scott's return to form with The Martian gives us reason to celebrate. Ryan Coogler continues to establish himself as a fantastic director with Creed, the Rocky movie that outdid the original. And Tom McCarthy's Spotlight is, as far as I'm concerned, a perfect film.
