Top 4 most anticipated new films that will win an Oscar!
With Sundance and Cannes behind us and a ton of high profile movies ahead, we journey through this year’s Oscar contenders.

So as the awards season dawns in the wake of best picture glory, here are our top 4 most anticipated films
Oscar directing favorite Alexander Payne returns in December with a sci-fi comedy, this time starring Matt Damon—no awards slouch himself, despite the jabs of ’16 host Jimmy Kimmel—and Kristen Wiig.
Beauty and the Beast
The original “Beauty and the Beast,” the 1991 classic, was the rare animated movie to earn a Best Picture nomination. The live-action version will be directed by Bill Condon, whose turn on “Dreamgirls” landed the musical film eight nominations in 2007.
The summer-due World War II drama is the next film from director Christopher Nolan, whose work on films such as “The Dark Knight” and “Interstellar” has bridged the often disparate worlds of genre imagination and critical praise. Journalist Sandro Monetti thinks the film could have an unlikely Best Supporting Actor: former One Direction singer Harry Styles.
Expect Netflix to go big on campaigning for its historical drama, a Sundance hit set in Mississippi in the 1940s and starring Mary J. Blige and Carey Mulligan. The streaming service already spent a reported $12.5 million to acquire the film, one of Sundance 2017’s biggest pickups.
