There are few things Oscar voters love more than to support a movie tackling important issues, and Meryl Streep. Steven Spielberg‘s “The Post” provides both of those things in ample doses, and the late arrival to the awards season looks like it’s going to shake up the game.

Streep is joined by Tom Hanks, and a ridiculously stacked ensemble (Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, Zach Woods), to tell the #truestory about The Washington Post’s battle to publish the Pentagon Papers, exposing the horrible realities about the war in Vietnam.

Yep, this one ticks all the boxes — freedom of the press! democracy! — and boasting what seems like a powerhouse performance by Streep, “The Post” looks like it can’t miss at the Oscars. Even those who wholly didn’t love the movie, are predicting no shortage of honors for the latest Spielberg jam.

“The Post” opens on December 22nd.
