It wouldn’t be December without lists ranking the best movies (and, well, the best everything) of the year. The Tastebud blog decided to gather data from 45 of these best movie lists to create one big, comprehensive ranking. Some of the publications represented included the New York Times, BuzzFeed, TIME, ScreenCrush and Business Insider.

Here’s the methodology behind the list, according to Tastebud:

After tallying the scores, these were the year’s top 10 most acclaimed films:

  1. Mad Max: Fury Road
  2. Spotlight
  3. Carol
  4. Inside Out
  5. Room
  6. Brooklyn
  7. The Big Short
  8. Ex Machina
  9. Anomalisa
  10. Sicario
