Inside the Best Picture Nominees: A deep dive into 'The Descendants'

There are a whopping nine films nominated for Best Picture at this year’s Academy Awards.

But never fear, dear PopWatchers — that’s why we’re here! Each day leading up to the Academy Awards Feb. 26, we’ll be providing you with a deep dive into one of the nine Best Picture nominees.

And if you’ve already seen all nine films, even better — our inside look at each nominee will serve as a handy guide to remind you of the best and worst moments from every Best Picture candidate this year.
