Next sunday sees the celebration of the 88th Annual Academy Awards ("Oscars"). Like last year this might be a chance to discuss the contenders for the Oscar for Best Picture of the year beforehand. So due to popular opinion we're starting a new weekly topic challenge. From 2016-02-22 00:00 UTC to 2016-02-28 23:00 UTC we encourage you to ask any kind of on-topic question on the main site about any of the Oscar nominees for Best Picture (in particular , , , , , , and ).

Once the challenge is over we'll tally the results and winners (by question votes) here. Also don't forget to suggest new topics for our next possible challenge. And you might also want to check out our live chat event during the actual ceremony.

  • Only watched one of them and have no question on it either.

    Mad Max for Best Picture? Seriously?? I enjoyed The Peanuts Movie more than that one. Actually, I enjoyed The Peanuts Movie more than almost anything else I saw this year. I will say this, though; if DiCaprio doesn't win an award for The Revenant, he got ripped off. He was a powerhouse in that movie. Feb 26, 2016 at 11:30

    @JohnnyBones Why not? Better than all 8 places filled with pseudo-deep biopic crap that would have worked better as a BBC TV movie. As to to DiCaprio, it's unfortunate that this is his highest chance ever to win it, while being more due to a false sense of authenticity rather than the genuine acting chops that brought him all his previous nominations.
