The 2012 Golden Enchilada Nominees

I do these at my own time. And today is that time. I do them so late because I’m not a fancy professional with screeners. I have to watch movies on my own time, like the rest of you. I’m not complaining. I still make time to see most everything I want to. My goal for one year is to watch 100 releases. This year I got to 85. I’m okay with that because my slate of 85 was already so strong, some of these categories were impossible to choose. Impossible. So better fewer to choose from.

First things First, the obligatory Top 10:
1. Zero Dark Thirty
2. The Master
3. Sound of My Voice
4. Compliance
5. Beasts of the Southern Wild
6. Amour
7. Life of Pi
8. Killer Joe
9. Silver Linings Playbook
10. The Cabin in the Woods
