Next sunday sees the celebration of the 89th 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.

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.
