We're almost at the end of movie awards season, and 2016 was one hell of a year for motion pictures. But before the season passes us by—the Tylt is facing off eight of the nine praised films nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars! It's round two—which film should the Academy honor as Best Picture on Sunday night, Feb. 26?

Take a look at the rest of our bracket:

Which praised drama should win Best Picture: 'Moonlight' or 'Fences'?

"Hidden Figures" beat out "Hacksaw Ridge" in our first round. And actual frontrunner "La La Land" out voted "Arrival."

"La La Land" is the ultimate frontrunner at the Academy Awards. It won the Golden Globe for Best Picture —Musical or Comedy, and it's been pretty much sweeping the awards season. It's going to be tough to beat this musical about an aspiring actress and struggling musician who fall in love in Tinsel Town.

"Hidden Figures" recently topped "La La Land" as the top-grossing Best Picture nominee. And critics argue that the film could pull an upset after winning the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

The film tells the true story of three Black female mathematicians who aided NASA in America's first successful space missions. And many moviegoers would love to see the inspiring blockbuster win the Oscar.

Audiences love the feel-good true story.

But some fans say "La La Land" deserves to be the frontrunner.
