Most Hollywood critics would say that the 2014 Oscar for Best Picture is a two-horse race. On one side, the visually stunning masterpiece of "Gravity," where Alfonso Cuaron takes viewers on an out-of-this-world journey through space, all in magnificent 3D. On the other side, "12 Years a Slave," directed by Steve McQueen, is an intense and heavy true story of a free man sold into slavery. Both films were easily among the best of the year but there could only be one winner.
There were many other great 2013 movies willing and ready to play the wild card. "American Hustle," "The Wolf of Wall Street," "Her," "Dallas Buyers Club," and "Nebraska" all got good deal of consideration by the Academy, and were all well deserved.So which movie are you rooting for? The sci-fi adventure of "Gravity," the emotional journey of "12 Years a Slave" or one of the other great films from throughout the year? You might not get a vote at the Oscars but that's not stopping you from sharing your picks here.
