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 four of the five praised leading performances from the acclaimed actresses nominated at the Oscars! But which actress should the Academy honor as Best Actress on Sunday night, Feb. 26?

Take a look at the rest of our bracket:

Who should win Best Actress: Natalie Portman or Ruth Negga?

Many believe it's a two-race between Stone and Huppert. One performance is of musical charm. And the other is haunting and dramatic. Who will win?

She sings! She dances! And Stone absolutely melts hearts as an aspiring actress who falls in love with a struggling musician in Hollywood. The film is an ode to musicals, and the industry loves it. The success of "La La Land" propelled Stone as the Best Actress frontrunner. She's the one to beat!

If anyone can beat Stone—it's Huppert. She might be nominated for a French movie at an American awards show—but the Oscars love to honor foreign actresses and performances from time-to-time. Huppert beat out Natalie Portman for Best Actress — Drama at the Golden Globes. Hence—her thrilling performance can probably take down Stone's musical turn.

In the dark drama, Huppert plays a businesswoman who tracks down the man who raped her in a game of cat and mouse. It's a meaty, heavy role to take on—and yet—Huppert's awards show she not only executed it, but deserves the Oscar.

In a fierce contest, the star of Oscar favorite "La La Land" has the advantage. But French veteran Isabelle Huppert could outclass her.

It might be Stone's time to shine!

Are fans speaking loud enough in favor of Huppert?
