You left one nominee off the list for Animated Film: Ernest & Celestine from France. I know animation gets little respect in the U.S., but c'mon Time...

Is this a total joke?  No Robert Redford; no All is Lost?  Did the folks who put this list together only go to see popular culture movies?  This is a bad year for thinking people.

Gravity was amazing and so was Philomena (huge surprise). 2013 was a year of exceptional movies and performances. including Blanchette, Leto, Dern and Dench. Look forward to seeing all of them except Wolf of Wall Street.

@lordofthefly Why not Wolf? Wolf was great. One of Scorsese's best. I was a bigger fan of The Departed and Goodfellas, but it's still up there.  I'll say though, I know there's a lot of fantastic male performances this year, but Leo knocks his role out of the friggin park in Wolf. I've also heard Bruce Dern in Nebraska is good, although I've not yet seen it.
