The highest honor for a film in Hollywood is an award for best picture at the Oscars. The nine films nominated for the most coveted award this year are Arrival, Fences, Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Hidden Figures, La La Land, Lion, Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight.
In 2016, the best picture award went to Spotlight, the film about a team of Boston Globe investigative journalists who uncovered a story on a priest accused of pedophilia. We'll see who wins the next best picture award when the Oscars air on ABC Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. Eastern and 4 p.m. Pacific.
