Below is the synopsis of "A Star is Born," per Rotten Tomatoes.

In "A Star Is Born," Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga fuse their considerable talents to depict the raw and passionate tale of Jack and Ally, two artistic souls coming together, on stage and in life. Theirs is a complex journey through the beauty and the heartbreak of a relationship struggling to survive. In this new take on the iconic love story, four-time Oscar nominee Cooper ("American Sniper," "American Hustle," "Silver Linings Playbook"), makes his directorial debut, and also stars alongside multiple award-winning, Oscar-nominated music superstar Gaga in her first leading role in a major motion picture. Cooper portrays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers and falls in love with struggling artist Ally. She has given up on her dream to become a successful singer, until she meets Jack, who immediately sees her natural talent.

While "A Star is Born" has been done before, the fourth official version of the film is still a beloved, critically-acclaimed film. The 2018 music film holds a fresh rating of 90 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and has made over $323 million globally so far at the box office.

The film holds a great chance of being nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor (Bradley Cooper) and Best Actress (Lady Gaga) at the 2019 Academy Awards, according to the top Oscar predictors. Little Monsters are also hopeful that Gaga will, at least, get a win for Best Original Song, as she put her heart and soul into the film's chart-topping soundtrack of the same name. One of the soundtrack's signature hits, "Shallow," peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Below is the synopsis of "Bohemian Rhapsody," per Rotten Tomatoes

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury's lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" is definitely the Rami Malek show, serving as a vehicle for the actor to show off his chops. The film holds a fresh rating of 62 percent on Rotten Tomatoes

Malek is garnering Oscar buzz in the Best Actor category for his performance as the late, great music icon Freddie Mercury. While Queen is one of the greatest and most revered bands of all time, the music biopic definitely has moviegoers singing along to the soundtrack behind their legacy.
