The Phoenix Film Critics Society 2014 Award Winners

Posted: Updated:

I'm pretty excited about this year's award winners from the Phoenix Film Critics Society.  Why?  Because for the first time I am in total agreement with the pick for Best Movie!  Usually, I am the odd girl out but not this time.  And while I don't agree with all of the choices, I'm okay with all of them so you can't go wrong with any of these movies.  In January I will give you my picks for best movies of 2014 so stay tuned!  I now present to you the Phoenix Film Critics Society 2014 Award Winners:
