My Best Picture Ballot for the 2014 Oscars

The Academy Awards are on Sunday. You know that. But what you might not know is that, for Best Picture, the Academy uses a "preferential process" for balloting. With that in my mind, here's how I would fill out my Oscar ballot if I was an AMPAS member. And, just so we're clear, these aren't predictions -- just my personal preferences among the nominees...

1. American Hustle    
2. Captain Phillips    
3. Gravity
4. 12 Years a Slave 
5. The Wolf of Wall Street
6. Her     
7. Nebraska
8. Dallas Buyers Club            
9. Philomena        

And, in case you missed it, here's my quick overview of 2013's actual best movies.
