This Barry Jenkins-directed drama is the hot favorite to pip La La Land to Best Picture. Mahershala Ali, meanwhile, is the leading contender for Best Supporting Actor, while Naomie Harris is getting major praise for her supporting turn.
Viola Davis is a shoo-in for Best Supporting Actress, while Denzel Washington, who also directed, will also likely be nominated.
