Now that I’ve wrapped coverage of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, where I had the opportunity to screen 31 films, I’m excited to be looking back at the year that we just finished. My favorites of 2013 weren’t all that much in line with Oscar picks, but there are certainly going to be some similarities. Last year, I named “Beasts of the Southern Wild” my favorite film, while Oscar winners Jennifer Lawrence and Christoph Waltz were joined by Oscar snubees John Hawkes and Ann Dowd in the acting categories.
The 7th Annual AFT Film Awards, my personal choices for the best in cinema, begin this coming Monday, February 3rd. I’m eager to hear your thoughts on my choices, and to find out who you might have included. After that, it will already be time for Oscar winner predictions, so come back and enjoy plenty of content in the month of February here at Movies With Abe!
