Just in time before the Academy Awards, I’m finally announcing the list of what I feel was the best of the best in 2014. I began doing this list a couple of years back, and I enjoyed it because it didn’t take too much work to compile, and it wasn’t too flashy. This isn’t an actual awards show by any means (I’m currently sitting in my underpants typing as you read this). This year, I’m expanding (although not too much of an expansion) into television and even music, so now you can ridicule me even more for my poor taste in music and television. I’m gonna quit beating around the bush and get on with it. Here are the winners and nominees for the 3rd annual Movie Talk With Jake Salinas awards.
