Despite hurricanes, earthquakes and every movie Taylor Kitsch made, 2012 has been a bounty of riches.
And, since it's Thanksgiving and all, we feel it's high time we took a moment to give thanks for those things (and people!) that have made this year so epically special.
So, without further ado...
1. 'Magic Mike,' for bringing sexy back.
2. Ben Affleck, for growing up to be a damn fine director. Who'd a guessed it?
3. Robert Pattinson, for teaching us what it looks like to truly feel.
4. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, for being super-cute and super-cool at the same time.
5. Javier Bardem, for being one of the Best. Bond. Villains. Ever.
6. The riff-off! (From 'Pitch Perfect')
7. The Hulk, for smashing.
8. Stephen Chbosky, for adapting and directing his own book, and thus making a near-perfect film.
9. Bruce Willis, for always looking so darn confused.
10. Bill Murray, for his various offscreen cameos around the world.
11. 'Twilight,' for ending.
12. 'John Carter,' for being such a great punchline.
13. Ryan Gosling, for living.
