Pick your favorites of the year in our third annual poll

This month, as we typically do this time of year, we have been gathering picks by professional critics for the best movies, TV shows, and albums of 2012. Think you can do better? Well, now it's your turn.

For the third consecutive year, we're inviting all Metacritic users to participate in our year-end poll. Submit 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.
  • 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 2012. (For TV, each show needs to have aired at least one new episode at any point during 2012, 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, 2012.
  • 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, 2013.
