It’s time to get ready for Sunday’s 22nd annual Critics’ Choice Awards. 

Hosted by Bingeworthy‘s Jessica Shaw and Touré, PEN’s Critics Choice Awards Nominations Special is the primer you need on this year’s nominees. In the clip above, Shaw, Touré, and the EW staff breaks down everything you need to know about this year’s Best Picture nominees, which include Arrival, Fences, Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, La La Land (EW’s pick for best movie of the year), Lion, Loving, Manchester by the Sea, Moonlight, and finally, Sully.

While Shaw is really pulling for La La Land, Touré believes Fences, which stars Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, is this year’s frontrunner. 

“This film is going to be hard to top because it’s just so amazing and it’s so beautiful,” says Touré about Fences in the video. 

Watch the clip above for a primer on all 10 of this year’s Best Picture nominees.
