2015 Academy Award Picks

So here's how this works: I'll give you a list of the nominees for each of the major categories, then I'll name who I think is the favorite to win, who I would give the award to, and finally if I thought anyone was left out. Short and sweet.

And while you're at it, check out My Top 10 Movies of 2014!!!

Now onto the business at hand...

Top 10 Movies of 2014

2014 was a surprisingly good year at the movie theater, with a number of delightful films at the end of the year filling up the Top 10. In fact, I saw about 90 movies released in 2014. There were a lot of really fun movies, but I have to say, similar to last year, the Top 3 movies on this list are truly head and shoulders above the rest. So let's get to it, with some quick housecleaning to do...

A Blast from the Past: Check out the following links for my Top 10 Movies of previous years: 2009 - 2010 - 2011 - 2012 - 2013
