Each year, the Online Film Critics Society (OFCS) votes on the best films of the year. Movie Habit — via Marty Mapes — is sharing its votes with the world.

In each category (column 1), members nominate up to five films (column 2). The nominations are tallied and the top five vote-getters in each category are announced (column 3). Members vote again for up to five of the nominees (column 4), and finally, the winners are announced (column 5).

Follow the political machinations as Marty votes with his colleagues on the best of 2002.

The first mention of each film is listed in bold type.
