Pick your favorites of the year in our second annual poll


Over the past few weeks, we have been tracking the picks by professional critics for the best movies, TV shows, and albums of 2011. Think you can do better? Well, now it's your turn.

Once again, we're inviting all Metacritic users to participate in our year-end poll. Enter your picks below, and, in 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. However, you don't have to vote in every category all at once; you can, say, make your movie picks now and come back and make your music picks next week.
  • You may only list titles released during 2011. (For TV, each show needs to have aired at least one new episode at any point during 2011, 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, 2011.
  • 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 January 6, 2012.

    Rango is overrated. I still like it, but I don't think it should have scored quite as high as it did. I still think that it's better than Cars 2 though. The only reason I think that Ocarina of Time is overrated is because I suck at Legend of Zelda. I'm really not that good at it.

    downton abby is a piece of **** BLOW IT UP I SAY!

    Take Care is the most overrated album of the year and probably in a long time peeps. Stop all that nonsense. All he ever talked about was the SAME things he talked about on his last time except now it is as monotone as ever and nothing real clever. He doesn't tell a story. All he tells is punchlines, and many of them weren't that clever.

  • frelling_cute
