From the LA Times (he’s not including foreign language films and lists the other films in his top ten in alphabetical order):

“Captain Phillips.” Intricate cat-and-mouse doings on a pirate-captured freighter mixing action, character and social conscience.
“American Hustle.” David O. Russell and familiar faces Adams, Bale, Cooper & Lawrence take a scam story to the limit and beyond.
“Frances Ha.” Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig present the joys and sorrows of youth, bringing a touch of the French New Wave to hipster New York.
“Fruitvale Station.” A real-life shooting in Oakland dramatized with assurance and emotional depth by debuting director Ryan Coogler.
“Gravity.” Imagine a camera in outer space and you are there. Knockout visuals show you the view from out there as you’ve never seen it before.
“Her.” Romance in the technological future envisioned by the iconoclastic Spike Jonze and stars Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson.
“Inside Llewyn Davis.” Jason Isaacs soars as a folk singer spending a week in Coen brothers hell. The music, however, is sweetness itself.
“The Invisible Woman.” Star and director Ralph Fiennes, aided by Felicity Jones, brings Charles Dickens to life in a triumph of classic cinema.
“Nebraska.” Bruce Dern and Will Forte in a poignant and ruefully funny father-and-son reunion that showcases the gifts of Alexander Payne.
“Short Term 12.” Exceptional naturalness and empathy in a foster-care group-home drama with a breakout performance by Brie Larson.
“12 Years a Slave.” Unblinking director Steve McQueen presents the horrors of slavery as Hollywood has not shown them before.

Ben+Affleck+18th+Annual+Critics+Choice+Movie+ILwCZYLpWDAl

The next big announcement is going to come from the Broadcast Film Critics Association, or BFCA, or Critics Choice awards. They are the largest voting body of critics -around 300.  They are also filled with folks of “dubious achievements,” and more Oscar bloggers than they probably should have. That makes their tastes somewhat mainstream but also a bit in keeping with the kinds of waves of popularity that sometimes take hold online but fail to move the needle in the industry at all.

Their tastes can sometimes match up with Oscar but the really important thing to know about them this year is that their live show is going to take place the same day of Oscar nominations. It will also be positionedafter the Golden Globe awards, unlike last year.   What happens at the Globes could maybe be altered somewhat by what happens at the BFCAs – their ratings were up last year, though they lost major points for cutting away during Tony Kushner’s win.  If their show sacrifices important moments like that to make it more MTV-esque it will lose credibility and influence quickly.  The Globes would never do such a thing.

The Critics Choice nominations will be announced bright and early Monday morning first as breaking news on KTLA, a local network here in Los Angeles, around 8:45am, before hitting the web shortly thereafter.
