Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Fabelmans’ Could be the Oscar Frontrunner for Best Picture

"The Fabelmans," a semi-autobiographical film by Steven Spielberg, was shown at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 10.

It was Spielberg's first feature film to ever be shown at TIFF. It's not a stretch to say that Spielberg is at the top of his game

. This emotional drama could win Spielberg his third directing statuette (after "Schindler's List" and "Saving Private Ryan")

and maybe his second for best picture (after "Schindler's List").

The story of "The Fabelmans" is about Sam Fabelman, a young boy who falls in love with movies but has to fight to keep his dream alive as his

family falls apart.
Spielberg's direction is what holds "The Fabelmans" together, and the movie nods to many of his most famous styles, including "E.T

The Extra-Terrestrial," "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Saving Private Ryan," and more.
