"Moonlight" first crushed "Manchester by the Sea" in our Oscars bracket—and has now beat "Fences," while "Hidden Figures" out voted "Hacksaw Ridge" before winning over "La La Land" in round two.

"Moonlight" is the alternative choice to win Best Picture over "La La Land." And moviegoers want the beautiful film to win big on Oscar night. The film won the Golden Globe for Best Picture — Drama. And traditionally, the Oscars loves to honor lauded dramas over acclaimed musical and comedy films. 

Many are hoping that the Oscar "dramatic picture" stereotype actually works in favor of "Moonlight" come Feb. 26.

"Hidden Figures" is the top grossing film out of the Best Picture nominees with $144 million at the U.S. box office. And ever since the film won the SAG award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, film buffs have argued the blockbuster could upset "La La Land" on Feb. 26.
