Here Are Indiewire's Top 20 Articles of 2012

2012 has been a big year for Indiewire. We went through a redesign. We won the 2012 Webby Award for Best Film Site. We started covering television extensively. We launched the Criticwire blog on our network. And we welcomed new staffers Jay A. Fernandez (Senior Writer & News Editor), Alison Willmore (Television Editor) and Matt Singer (Criticwire Blog Editor).

In celebration, we decided we'd take a look back at your favorite articles of 2012, measured by how many visits each received.

We should note that this list does not include our wildly popular, constantly evolving Oscar prediction columns for both 2012 and 2013, which would have taken up much of this list.

1. The Best Indie Movies of 2012 So Far, According to Criticwire

Our mid-year list of the year's best films (according to Criticwire) was a big hit with our readers, and it was a precursor to our shiny new year-end Criticwire survey

2. What Does It Mean that Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures Picked Up U.S. Distribution Rights to Harmony Korine's 'Spring Breakers'?

Harmony Korine's bizarro ode to every co-ed's favorite time of the year was acquired for release by Hollywood producer Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures and this article's traffic soared.  The unsavory comments below suggest its popularity had something to do with the film still used.

3. The Best Indie Movies of 2011 So Far: 'Sound of My Voice' and 'The Interrupters' Top criticWIRE

Last year's mid-year best-of also performed high, with people eager to relive the best indie films of 2012.

4. Summer 2012 Movie Preview: The 20 Indies You Must See

Before the dog days hit, we gave you our list of the twenty indies that you couldn't miss.  Apparently, it was just what you needed.

5. Louis C.K. on Finally Bringing His 'Louie' Character's Ex-Wife on Screen and Why She's African-American

One of our favorite funny guys debuted his sitcom character's much-talked-about ex-wife, and you wanted to know more.

6. EXCLUSIVE: James Franco Teams With Gay Art-Porn Director Travis Mathews for a 'Cruising'-Inspired Film

The James Franco and Travis Mathews re-imagining of the lost scenes from William Friedkin's "Cruising" clearly piqued the interest of Indiewire readers. The film, now titled "Interior. Leather Bar.," will debut this January at the Sundance Film Festival.

7. The Six Things You Must Know to Make It in the Film Industry

An excerpt from Barbara Freedman Doyle's book Make Your Movie: What You Need to Know About the Business and Politics of Filmmaking, was essential reading for the filmmakers among you.

8. Why 'Adventure Time,' Now In Its Fifth Season, Is More Groundbreaking Than You May Realize

Eric Kohn's critical essay of the adult-oriented sophisticated Cartoon Network series was just what many of you needed.

9. The 'Django Unchained' Cheat Sheet: 10 Things That Will Help You Understand Tarantino's Referential Bloodfest

With allusion after allusion, some might need a cheat sheet to understand what makes "Django Unchained" so complicated.  Eric Kohn came to the rescue.

10. Watch: The Onion Takes on Reality TV in Web Series 'Sex House'

The prospect of The Onion doing a spoof of reality television was interesting to many of you, placing our write-up of the series debut in the top ten articles of the year.
