The stars have been named the autumn (15) movie stars most likely to get Academy Awards best acting nods for their films Black Mass and Secret in Their Eyes, respectively, according to a new survey conducted by movie tickets and information website Fandango.

Meanwhile, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 has been named the season's most anticipated movie for the third consecutive year, and Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur was selected as the most anticipated family film.

Depp leads Tom Hanks (Bridge of Spies) and Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs) in the Best Actor poll, while Roberts is a favourite to get an Oscars nod, ahead of Cate Blanchett (Carol) and Emily Blunt (Sicario).

Depp's new film about killer gangster James 'Whitey' Bulger was a big hit at the Venice Film Festival last week (ends04Sep15) when it screened out of competition.

Many critics agree with fans that this is Depp's best role ever and he's a clear Oscars favourite.
