February 23, 2013 • The Oscars are Here!

The past few months have been insanely busy for me as I try desperately to finish the book I've been working on for four long years. But the Oscars are tomorrow night! (You can get your printable ballot here.) And I never miss a chance to talk about the Oscars or the year in film. 

From my point of view, this was a stellar year in movies. I saw so many outstanding films this year that I was unable to include every film I loved in my top ten list (Les Mis, Pitch Perfect, and Lincoln, I'm talking to you), and the films I did include were all mind-blowlingly awesome. Here they are:

1. Zero Dark Thirty*

2. Silver Linings Playbook

3. Amour

4. Argo

5. Safety Not Guaranteed

6. Perks of Being a Wallflower

7. Jeff Who Lives at Home

8. Turn Me On Dammit

9. The Impossible

10. Flight

May the best film win!
