Pick your favorites of the year in our fourth annual poll


Over the past few weeks we have been gathering picks by professional critics for the best movies, TV shows, and albums of 2013. Think you can do better? Well, now it's your turn.

For the fourth consecutive year, we're inviting all Metacritic users to participate in our year-end poll. Submit your picks below, and, in early January, we'll tally all the results and display the leading vote-getters on our site. To determine the winners, we will use a simple scoring system, where all 1st place votes get 5 points, 2nd place votes get 4 points, and so on down to 1 point for each 5th place vote.

A few simple rules

  • You may vote only once. Once you submit your picks in a category, that's it—they cannot be edited.
  • BUT, you don't have to vote in every category all at once; feel free to make your picks in one or more categories now, and then come back next week to finish the other categories.
  • You may only vote for titles released during 2013. (For TV, each show needs to have aired at least one new episode at some point during 2013, even if that show is no longer on the air now.) We will invalidate any picks that were not released between January 1 and December 31, 2013.
  • We will also invalidate any duplicate votes, so don't try voting for the same title five times.
  • Voting will close at 5:00pm PST on Sunday, January 5, 2014.

    I love this whole polarizing effect The Stanley Parable has generated, I'm one of the big fans (I even named the best game of this year) but I understand why people don't like it and I love these arguments

    Well, this is my list for TV shows:
    #1: Breaking Bad
    #2: Les Revenants (The Returned)
    #3: Mad Men
    #4: Game of Thrones
    #5: Masters of Sex

    By the way, it would have been nice to have a category only for new shows as well.

    I feel like I need more time for the movies vote. There are so many to see in the next 2.5 weeks. So many I haven't seen yet. I mean right now my top five looks like this:

    12 Years a Slave (10/10)
    The Place Beyond the Pines (10/10)
    Side Effects (10/10)
    The Wolverine (10/10)
    Man of Steel (9/10)
