Alright, so we’ve started the year off with a couple strong, successful films. “The Lego Movie” landed with a slew of powerful reviews along with the successful Wes Anderson film “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” Meanwhile we’ve had some strong independent titles like “Under the Skin” and “Locke” hit the review circuit. Also, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” has already climbed to the top of the annual box office, also presenting strong reviews.
Are any of these films going to be the best of 2014? It’s going to be rough considering the slate we have. We are going to present you with our Top 20 guesses of what could receive the most acclaim and give shout outs to some other films that could be in the mix.
Here is your complete guide to what could be the best film of 2014:
It’s been quite a battle this year. There were many unique and great films to come from 2013. There are several categories where the front-runner isn’t exactly clear cut. With our final predictions we have the following films winning:
“Gravity” wins 7 Oscars
“12 Years a Slave” wins 3 Oscars
“Dallas Buyers Club” wins 3 Oscars
“Frozen” wins 2 Oscars
The following notable films will win one Oscar: “American Hustle,” “Her,” “Blue Jasmine,” and “The Great Gatsby.”
So here are our final Oscar Predictions for the 2014 season. Stay tuned to the Oscar page for our 2015 Nominee Predictions. (more…)
“12 Years a Slave,” “The Last of Us,” and “Breaking Bad” are the best of 2013. Here is the full list of the 1st Annual M10 Award Winners.

Last night Alfonso Cuaron picked up one of the biggest precursor awards for his space epic. It wasn’t a complete surprise when Cuaron’s name was announced; he previously received a Golden Globe for “Gravity” as well. If we have learned anything from this win it is that “12 Years a Slave’s” front-runner status is in danger.
“12 Years a Slave” was the early favorite. People loved “Gravity” when it landed in theaters, but people still said “12 Years a Slave” was the film to beat. When December came around and critic’s awards were being announced you often heard one of the two films being named best picture of 2013 with “Her” and “American Hustle” thrown in intermittently.

Oscar: Final Nomination Predictions
Here are our final Oscar Predictions. The nominations will be announced tomorrow morning. Our Oscar page will promptly be updated to predicted the candidates most likely to win after the nomination announcement.
Here are our predictions:
There will undoubtedly be some major snubs when the Oscar nominations are announced January 16th. Major front-runners have often been pushed aside. Some say this is because voters won’t pick the obvious choice so they can help an underdog get in.
Unfortunately this helps to eliminate a lot of major front-runners. (Which is said to have happened last year to Ben Affleck for “Argo.”)
So really though, no one is completely safe. So here are list of some obvious choices that could get the booth on the morning of the 16th.
Golden Globes: Final Predictions
“American Hustle” will win big tonight. At least that’s what we’re predicting. It’s been a long time since the Golden Globes have had so many categories that could go either direction. “Gravity” vs. “12 Years a Slave” will be the biggest rivalry of the night.
Both Television and Film Nomination Predictions are listed below.
So here are our predictions and odds for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards:
Film: 1st Annual M10 Nominations

12 Years a Slave, Gravity, Inside Llewyn Davis, Her all squeeze into the top 20 films of the decade so far. The Social Network continues reign as best film of the decade.
This time last year we compiled the top 20 films of the decade so far, and now we have updated it. Unfortunately of the 20 slots only four 2013 films have factored into the list, but all have made the top 10.
Remember, this list will be updated each year and films may fall shorter or fall off completely each year. Movies (like fine wine) can get better with age. So here is where we stand as of now at the end of 2013. (more…)
