Oscar Eligible Movies From 2013

by Col Needham | created - 17 Dec 2013 | updated - 17 Dec 2013 | Public

This is an IMDb list in alphabetical order containing all the 2013 Oscar eligible movies as defined by AMPAS here via these eligibility rules.

At the time of list creation (17 December 2013) I have seen 145 out of 289 titles. 9 have no votes on IMDb so have not yet been seen by anyone, and a sizeable number have yet to open in the UK plus have not screened at any festivals I attended.

Currently the only title missing from IMDb is 'Specific Intent 2 (2013)' which should be added in the next few days. Note that some titles are known by alternate titles on IMDb, the sort order is by the title as recognised by AMPAS.
