There's a lot to consider here so I'm only answering the ones I can be sure of right off the bat. I'll fill in the rest later.

1. Black Messiah - D'Angelo & The Vanguard
2. Pale Communion - Opeth
3. Foundations of Burden - Pallbearer
4. Once More 'Round The Sun - Mastodon
5. Benji - Sun Kil Moon

Movies
Favorite Movies of 2014

Favorite Movie from a previous year you watched for the first time this year: Used Cars
Worst Movie of 2014: Transformers: Age of Extinction
Anything else you'd like to mention about movies from 2014: Is as always, it pains me that I still haven't seen everything that I wanted to, but this year was spectacular for films.

TV
Favorite TV Shows of 2014
1. The Americans
2. Hannibal
3. Game of Thrones
4. Archer
5. True Detective

HM: The Newsroom. The final season was a great send-off for a show that I loved, warts and all and for Aaron Sorkin's time on television. Also Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Justified had its weakest season (if only compared to the high bars set by the past seasons) but it was still entertaining. I had high hopes for Almost Human for all of its potential.

Favorite New Show: True Detective
Favorite TV Show or Season you watched for the first time from before this year: Chuck

I take it back, I take it back. I put How To Train Your Dragon 2 as kind of a placeholder because it produced a couple of groans in me. It wasn't an awful movie though, it was just kind of meh. But holy shit, I just saw Lucy and what a steaming pile that movie was.

So worst movie: Lucy. Good god.

I first discovered Sia when it was featured in a Prince of Persia trailer back in 2008 (or around then).

Like every other TV list this year, avid's makes me wish I was caught up with Hannibal. I hear its been incredible and it seems right up my alley. Also kind of thought you'd have True Detective on your list avid.

Yeah, I didn't even consider True Detective; those 5 were the ones that stood out to my mind. I may have to reconsider True Detective and yet giving it an HM doesn't make it a lesser show (I even loved the finale, unlike some people). I guess with a top 5, something has to get cut. I'll think about it.

Music
Favorite Albums of 2014

1. Are We There - Sharon Van Etten. Nothing else was as consistently affecting
2. Salad Days - Mac Demarco
3. St. Vincent - St. Vincent.
4. It's Album Time - Todd Terje
5. Syro - Aphex Twin
HM: Our Love - Caribou, Black Messiah - D'Angelo and The Vanguard

Favorite Songs of 2014
1. XMAS_EVET10 [120][thanaton3 mix] - Aphex Twin. I found the full album a little tiresome toward the end but I can't get enough of the early tracks and this is my favorite of the bunch. Sounds so great
2. Alfonso Muskedunder - Todd Terje. My alternate universe RPG level-up music
3. Prince Johnny - St. Vincent
4. A Little God In My Hands - The Swans
5. Chamber of Reflection - Mac Demarco

Favorite New Artist: FKA Twigs (even though music like this insists on having shit lyrics. Is there some kind of contract they sign?)
Favorite Artist or Album you discovered for the first time this year: Tago Mago - Can
Anything else you'd like to say about music from 2014?  
It was a strange year for me. I found myself dissappointed by most of my favorites' new albums and surprised by the ones I wasn't crazy about before

Movies
Favorite Movies of 2014

1. The Grand Budapest Hotel
2. The Lego Movie
3. X-Men: Days of Future Past
4. Guardians of the Galaxy
5. Fury

Favorite Movie from a previous year you watched for the first time this year: Rashomon
Worst Movie of 2014: The November Man I guess, though that's more due to lack of bad movies. It wasn't awful, it just wasn't that good. Avalanche Shark was pretty awful but that was 2013 apparently

TV
Favorite TV Shows of 2014

1. Game of Thrones
2. Fargo
3. True Detective
4. Community

Favorite New Show: Fargo
Favorite TV Show or Season you watched for the first time from before this year: Six Feet Under
Anything else you'd like to mention about TV from 2014: Again I didn't watch much. Unless you count endless Pawn Stars and restoration and trucking shows at my parents house

I love that both The Lego Movie and The Grand Budapest Hotel is getting so much love.

Also, updated my list a little.

Music
Favorite Albums of 2014
1. Conor Oberst - Upside Down Mountain
2. Jack White - Lazaretto
3. Lana Del Rey - Ultraviolence
4.
5.

Favorite Songs of 2014
1. Desert Island Questionnaire by Conor Oberst - Amazing lyrics. I truly feel he's the best lyricist/song writer making music today. His words just paint pictures and you can see and imagine his songs coming to life.
2. West Coast by Lana Del Rey
3. Would You Fight For My Love by Jack White
4.
5.

Favorite New Artist:
Favorite Artist or Album you discovered for the first time this year: ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail Of Dead. I've listened to them before, but really got into them this year. Their album "So Divided" is great, and they have the themes of hopelessness that I love in music. Poppy and catchy, but with so much pessimism.
Worst Album of 2014: If Jennifer Lopez came out with an album, I'll say that. I hate her.
Worst Song of 2014: Typically radio music is always horrible.
Anything else you'd like to say about music from 2014? 20 Years later and Nirvana is still my favorite band. Daniel Johns lied to me, said he had an album coming out this year.

Movies
Favorite Movies of 2014
1. The Hobbit - Battle of the Five Armies. I love these movies, I'd be foolish to pick something else. Also, I mainly watch movies the next year after they were released.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Favorite Movie from a previous year you watched for the first time this year: Safety Not Guaranteed. Really enjoyed that.
Worst Movie of 2014: The Lego Movie.
Just kidding. Thanks to volvo I have it on vudu, I need to watch it.
Anything else you'd like to mention about movies from 2014: I really need to get into movies more. I used to love them, now I rarely watch them.

TV
Favorite TV Shows of 2014
1. True Detective
2. Game of Thrones
3. Girls
4. Hell on Wheels
5. Agents of Shield, especially the second half of season 1

Favorite TV Episodes of 2014
1. The ending of True Detective where you see the guy walking around in underwear gave me chills. But my favorite is the episode where Rust goes in the ghetto and that beautiful 8 minute one shot.
2. Watching Joffrey die.
3.
4.
5.

Favorite New Show: True Detective
Favorite TV Show or Season you watched for the first time from before this year: Spider-Man cartoon.
Worst Show of 2014: Moms or that 2 Broke Girls show. Neither are funny.
Anything else you'd like to mention about TV from 2014: Matthew M. got robbed by Bryan Cranston's farewell nod. Space Ghost should have replaced David Letterman.
