There were a few things that were learned over the course of the last 12 months. Here are the most important things:
If you want a successful movie at the box office, put The Rock in it. The man was the highest grossing actor of the year (even beating out Robert Downey Jr.).
Batman is the best super hero of all time. They wouldn’t even let him rest in peace. The Dark Knight trilogy just ended and they're already planning more movies with a new Batman. Even Spider-Man got three years before they rebooted his franchise.
Billy Ray Cyrus is not the father of the year. Watch the Mtv Video Music Awards to see proof of that.
The Carolina Panthers can be a legitimate team. They've had the best season in over a decade. Super Bowl chances?? We'll see. One thing is for sure: it's Cam Newton's best season yet.
2014 needs a lot more Emma Stone. There seemed to be a shortage of Emma Stone last year.
I didn't see too much of the redhead who was so much fun in 2010's Easy A.
She did lend her voice to the animated movie The Croods, but that hardly counts. This problem should be rectified this year when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 comes out in this spring. She'll also be in Magic in the Moonlight and Birdman.
Beyonce can do no wrong. Personally, I didn't like BEYONCÉ, but her millions of fans did. Kudos to her for her success.
Melissa McCarthy is hilarious. Okay, we knew that already, but she cemented that fact this year. She was hilarious in Identity Thief and was the better half of a Sandra Bullock team in The Heat.
