Awards Season means that there is going to be a lot of talk about which movies from 2016 are truly the best. But, what always seems to happen is that many of the best movies from the previous year are left out of the award shows.
The Acadamy Awards is one of the most coveted awards in Hollywood, but year after year the award always seems to go to the same kinds of movies. This means that there are plenty of amazing movies left out of the running because they don't quite fit the bill. The same can be said for the 2017 Academy Awards.
So, we've put together a short list of movies that we think deserve Oscars but probably won't win any. Some of these films are likely to be nominated in some fashion, whether it's for music, effects, or actors, but none of the are likely to be nominated - let alone win - the biggest prize of the night, Best Motion Picture.
Take a look at the films we think deserve a little recognition this year and let us know which 2016 films you would like to see win an Oscar, but probably won't.
Hilarious. Absurd. Action-packed. Dramatic. This movie has everything you need for a great comedy. Though it currently has a 2017 nom, it is highly unlikely to win the trophy.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
The first film of a brand new series from the Harry Potter universe. If nothing else, this film should win simply because it brought the Wizarding World back to the big screen. More importantly, it had a spectacular cast - Eddie Redmayne was brilliant- beautiful special effects, and a soundtrack that will give you chills

Kubo and the Two Strings
This animated, stop-motion film is a perfect combination of fun adventure, scary villains, and incredible music. The overall the movie is beautiful and it has a touching story about family. What's more, the music is amazing. It makes the movie shine. It can be described as a little bit of classic rock with major Asian influences. Though this film might land a nomination, the competition is likely too high for it to walk away with the trophy.

A horror film featuring Patrick Stewart as a neo-nazi. What could be more terrifying than a world where Stewart is a nazi? The movie follows a band who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and are hunted down to silence them. Sadly, horror movies never make it into award shows.
If the award for Best Motion Picture was awarded solely based on ticket sales, then Rogue One would win - hands down. If the award was given to the film that was the most nostalgic, while being completely new - hands down. If the award was given for film loved best by fans - hands down. Sadly, however, though this movie was amazing, the Acadamy Awards tend to go to movies that have less spaceships and more everyday life drama.
