'12 Years A Slave', 'Gravity', 'American Hustle' Win in 15th Annual Golden Tomato Awards

'Tis the season — award season, that is. And while the interwebs may be abuzz with Golden Globes and Oscar talk, there's one award that is less known, but just as important (maybe). RottenTomatoes.com has awarded their 15th annual Golden Tomato Awards, awards that are given to the top reviewed of 2013. So while the Globes and the Academy Awards are voted on by a panel or group of individuals, these awards are chosen by the critics, the professionals, the perfectionists. And that's what makes the results even more surprising. A critics honed perspective may not match with the public eye. For example, how did Enough Said, the lower budget Julia Louis-Dreyfus flick, beat out the sultry, Jennifer Lawrence-laden American Hustle? The critics, man. So let's take a look at the top picks in both wide and limited release categories.

(Note: The "adjusted" ratings are based on giving each critic one vote, and using a weighted system that takes into account the number of reviews each film received).
