Awards season is in full swing, with studios working feverishly to promote the films and performances they hope will eventually bring home the Oscar gold. So who are the top 2020 Oscar hopefuls? That's what this list will spell out.

Of course, there are always as many wannabe contenders as there are legitimate contenders. When it comes to award-seeking, there's a tendency to throw everything possible against the wall to see what sticks. To get around that, we've shuffled through literally every single movie the studios are asking awards voters to consider, then narrowed them all down to the ones most likely to stand a shot at getting nominated. The categories included run the gamut, from major awards like Best Picture and Best Actress to more specialized awards, such as Best Cinematography and Best Original Song

Having done this work, we need you to hone the list by voting for the films and people you think are most likely headed for the stage at the Kodak Theater on February 9. Which of the 2020 Oscar buzz movies do you think have the best chance of winning? Which actors and actresses are going to join the elite list of Oscar victors? 

Give us your predictions by voting up the 2020 Oscar hopefuls you believe will go all the way.
