Lists by IMDb Editors
Our list following the fates of this fall's new shows - we'll add shows to the list as they are either picked up or cancelled.
Tom Cruise gets a lot of flak for some of his eccentricities -- his obsession with Scientology is pretty out-there, and he'll never live down the Oprah couch-jumping incident -- but here at IMDb we still can't resist his charm. Ahead of the opening of his new sci-fi adventure Oblivion, we've compiled 10 reasons why we still think Tom is great.
Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest physicists of our time, recently predicted that the human race will not survive another 1,000 years "without escaping our fragile planet," suggesting that space exploration will be the salvation of our species.

Here are a few of our favorites.

In the land of movies, it was a great night if you were named Ben Affleck or Jennifer Lawrence, or sang your heart out in the French gutters. For TV, it was a great night for women, "Girls", and laughter in general.

Here's our rundown of the highlights and shocking omissions within the 70th Annual Golden Globes' movie and television selections.

It's important to note that this is not our idea of a definitive Best of the Best list, although many of the series listed here also occupy slots on many Best of 2013 TV lists. Rather, this is a list of series, episodes, and characters that we not only loved watching over the past year, but loved encouraging other people to watch. - Melanie McFarland, TV Editor

As we enter the season of brides, let's consider a few films and television episodes that took the idea of that very special day to very different places.
We may have reached the traditional television season's halfway point, but lots of new series haven't premiered yet. Among these upcoming series debuts are a few destined to have a place on several "Best of 2014" lists at year's end. Others will become guilty pleasures, while some may go as quickly and quietly as they arrive.
The shows listed here fall into all of these categories, and while I can't guarantee all (or any) of them will earn huge ratings or critical acclaim, I am intrigued enough by what I've seen of them to put them on my Watchlist for at least a few episodes.
