The Oscars is the most commemorated award ceremony in the history of films. Some years are considerable; some are disagreeable. In the end, we all just appreciate the incredible movies we come across to today. This is a list of films that should likely get nominated for an Oscar in 2016. The Revenant, Spotlight and The Martian are strong contenders; while others are not. Will this be Leonardo DiCaprio's first Oscar win? Will Star Wars: The Force Awakens get snubbed for the Best Picture category? Will this be Sylvestor Stallones' first Oscar?
