It's been another year of movies, and so it's time for another round of The Matt Awards, the most-anticipated movie awards of the season (well, by me, anyway)!
Every year I pick the best in film, in various categories. Been doing this since 1997, when my Best Picture was Titanic. There are few mediums that resonate with a person better than film, and this is my way of acknowledging and keeping track of those movies, actors, actresses, directors, etc. that have had the greatest impact on me year-by-year.
2013 was a pretty decent year for movies. It seemed to have a fairly diverse line-up, with a selection of styles and subject matter that could please nearly everyone. As it stands, I've seen (almost) every film from the past year that I have an interest in, and so here are the winners of the 2013 Matt Awards. Enjoy!
