There are some great choices on this list, even if anything that smelled too strongly of science fiction or fantasy did get politely ignored like a drunk aunt at a wedding. The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones are both absent, but at least the Emmy-snubbed Tatiana Maslany got some well-deserved recognition for her performances in sci-fi mystery Orphan Black.

American Hustle and 12 Years a Slave have come out ahead in the the movie award race and the rest of the picks cover a pleasing range of this year’s most critically-acclaimed titles, though it’s unfortunate to see Haifaa Al-Mansour’s touching coming-of-age story Wadjda left off the list.
