My annual awards that I pick as my favorite everything of the year from best score to best trailer and of course best movie (not to mention all the inbetweens!) I'd like for you to comment on your opinions also, share some ideas around! Lets begin..

Best Trailer

Man of Steel is my winner here. It did come in at a hefty 3 minutes but it stole my attention and had me watch it well over 15 times. It was well done regarding music and just pacing and 33 million views on Youtube doesn't lie (even if half are mine)

Honorable mention: The Great Gatsby

Best Actress Performance (Film)

For me this has to go to Elizabeth Olsen for her role in Liberal Arts alongside Josh Radnor. She really shone and I guarantee she will go on to be very popular among Hollywood. Especially after Godzilla (2014)

Honorable Mention: Sandra Bullock (Gravity)

Best Actor Performance (Film)

This was a tough one for me. Good year for male actors but it had to go to this man. Charming and full of mystery in Gravity this year, definitely the best for me. I know he hadn't the screen time of Sandra Bullock, but he made his time great.

Honorable mention: Brad Pitt (World War Z)

Best Score

Man of Steel. You love it or you hate it. I'm sure you can guess which side I'm on. I love Hans Zimmer, living genius, needs to be appreciated more! Great score.

Honorable mention: Oblivion

Best Actor (TV)

TV show acting has really stepped up this year and there's been a lot of great performances but for me its only this man. Amazing talent.

Honorable mention: Kevin Spacey (House of Cards)

Best Actress (TV)

Netflix original Orange is The New Black makes its way here with Taylor Schilling as my choice for best actress. Really enjoyed her as Piper and I cant wait for season 2!

Honorable mention: Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad)

Best TV Show

The Final season. The one and only Breaking Bad steals this one in a no-brainer. Tons of great shows out there but this is just number one for me.

Honorable mention: The Walking Dead

Best Comedy (Movie)

The sequel I dreamed about for 9 years brought to the big screen fulfilling everything I could imagine. A real classic I'll watch 100's of times.

Honorable Mention: This Is The End

Best Comedy (TV)

The gang are number 1 here for me. The new season has been shaky at times but earlier 2013 and more so now this show is the best of what its going for.

Honorable mention(s): Parks and Rec & New Girl

Best Film of 2013

Had to be this one for me, I couldn't have any other. I've been following World War Z since first production 4 years ago and loved it. Man of Steel was great, as was The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but this for me was #1 (and that's number 1, not hastag1)
