"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.

"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.
