The end of the year is dominated by one critics top 10 list after another, but what about everyone else?

We asked our readers to name their favorite film and television show from the past 12 months, and after more than 800 submissions, we’ve tallied up the selections to create our official readers’ top 10 lists below. Suffice to say, our readers have very, very excellent taste.
