1. The Circle

Tom Hanks and Emma Watson star in this adaptation of Dave Eggers’s sci-fi-tinged thriller about a young tech nerd (Watson) who scores a job with a global corporation only to discover that its mysterious CEO (Hanks) might not be as benign as he seems. Hanks is walking Oscar-bait, and the supporting cast is stunning: the late, great Bill Paxton puts in an appearance, while ‘Star Wars’ actor John Boyega grabs the chance to prove he’s much more than just an ex-stormtrooper.

Most likely to win If it’s as good as it looks, ‘The Circle’ could sweep the board: Best Picture, a posthumous Supporting Actor for Paxton, Actress for Watson, Actor for Hanks.
