Dune is the fan-favorite pick deserving of the Best Picture Oscar, according to Fandango users. The ticketing company surveyed more than 2,000 film fans to ask which movies and performers should win top awards at the 94th Academy Awards, where the Denis Villeneuve-directed sci-fi epic is nominated in 10 categories, including Best Picture and Best Cinematography. According to the survey, Dune would win gold for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay if Fandango users could vote on the Oscar ballots. See the full list of Fandango fan picks below.
Fandango fans also picked Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield (Tick, Tick... Boom!) for Best Actor, Kirsten Dunst (The Power of the Dog) for Best Supporting Actress, and J.K. Simmons (Being the Ricardos) for Best Supporting Actor. Picks in other top categories include Kristen Stewart (Spencer) for Best Actress, Kenneth Branagh's Belfast for Best Original Screenplay, and Disney's Encanto for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (Lin-Manuel Miranda's "Dos Oruguitas").
