2013 Villain of the Year Winner

12 Years a Slave

I strongly considered leaving this character out of the category altogether, and its with mixed feelings that I did eventually decided to include him.  Placing a real man who committed acts of real cruelty that were representative of millions of other acts of real cruelty across the country next to the likes of General Zod seemed to be somewhat tasteless, but I ultimately decided that it wasn’t real cruelty that I was measuring here so much as Steve McQueen’s ability to depict evil onscreen, and that accomplishment is unquestionable.
