IGN's 2019 Movie, TV, Comic Book, and Anime of the Year Awards

2019 was a great year for movies, TV, comic books, and anime, from Avengers Endgaming to Watchmen returning to amazing runs on the page for characters like the Dark Knight and Thor. So now, as we prepare to close out the year, it's time to once again pick our favorites — the truly great films and shows and comics that stood head and shoulders above the rest.

First up today we present our nominations in a wide variety of categories. And then in the coming weeks we will announce our winners. What will the best movie, TV series, comic book, and anime be of 2019? Stay tuned…

And one note: Some films and shows haven't been shown to the press yet at the time of publication (we're looking at you, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker!), so we reserve the right to add any such title to our nominees list once we've seen it.

Here are our nominees for the best of 2019 in the world of movies, TV, comics, anime.
