Movies you have to see before the Oscars

Oscar nominations were announced Tuesday and you have a few weeks to see as many nominated films as possible.

If you're viewing on our ABC13 news app, tap on the photos above to see more images.

The movies featured above are: Arrival, Fences, Hell or High Water, La La Land, Lion, Hacksaw Ridge, Hidden Figures, Manchester By The Sea, Moonlight, Elle, Florence Foster Jenkins and Jackie.

"La La Land" tops the odds for best picture, and its director Damien Chazelle is the favorite for best director at the Academy Awards.

But Las Vegas bookmakers on Tuesday made Viola Davis the clearest Oscars pick, for best supporting actress for her role in "Fences."

Wynn Las Vegas sports book chief Johnny Avello and America's Line director Ben Eckstein say Casey Affleck's performance in "Manchester by the Sea" makes him the favorite for best actor.

Best actress appears close. Avello makes Isabelle Huppert a slight favorite for "Elle," over Natalie Portman in "Jackie." Eckstein thinks Emma Stone could win for "La La Land."

Both think Mahershala Ali of "Moonlight" will win best supporting actor.

The odds are posted for fun. Nevada doesn't allow wagering on the Oscars.
