"Birdman"? "Shake It Off"? "True Detective"? We hated them all this year.

Okay, maybe "hate" is too strong a word. And "we" certainly is - indeed, only one staff member a piece is willing to go on record as (loathing? abhoring? despising?) each of the aforementioned popular and/or critical favorites in 2014. As we find ourselves in the thick of Hollywood's self-congratulatory awards season, allow us to be contrarians for a moment while we sound off on the overwhelmingly beloved films, songs, TV show and celebs that we just couldn't stomach over the last 12 months.

Bah humbug, indeed.
