The list is quite impressive and more than a few of may favorite films have made it on the list. THE IMITATION GAME and WHIPLASH are in my top 5 films of the year and I would have liked to see Miles teller join the lead actor list. I still have a few films to see off this list before I can really make any arguments, but this list is looking great. I can’t wait to see what the Golden Globes will bring! This awards season may be the most exciting one yet.
