Room is one of the year's most surprising and touching movies, which could have never happened without Larson and Tremblay's totally believable performances that turn the story of a horrifying kidnapping into a celebration of the transcendent bonds between parents and their children.

"This is the best night of my life," Amy Schumer addressed the exuberant crowd at Alice Tully Hall on Tuesday for the world premiere of her romantic comedy, Trainwreck. Director Judd Apatow stood nearby feeding the comedienne lines, reminding her to thank Universal and the Film Society of Lincoln Center, hosts of the spectacular launch, including the lavish after party at the refurbished Tavern on the Green.

If you're an awards junkie, then you already know the likely Oscar nominees. Just to be contrary, I thought I'd nominate people and films who, like boss Jim Gettys, have something less than a chance. These are the films and performances of 2013 that should be considered, but won't be.

If you've seen ads for Don Jon that make it seem like a fairly standard romantic comedy, it might surprise you. But that's because Don Jon often feels and often looks like two kinds of movies awkwardly mashed together.
