Amazon Announces The Best Of Music, Movies And TV This Year, So Far

Stocks in this article: AMZN

(NASDAQ:AMZN)—Amazon.com today announced its retrospective look at the Best Music and Best Movies & TV since the start of 2013. Compiled from best-selling rankings, curated editor picks and spotlight selections, the lists showcase the variety of blockbuster, hit-making and buzz-worthy entertainment that became available on Amazon.com the first half of this year.

Movie and TV selections from the first six months of 2013 highlight blockbuster theatrical releases including Argo, A Good Day to Die Hard, Django Unchained and Skyfall to family-fun films such as Rise of the Guardians, Wreck-it Ralph and Frankenweenie, among others, while TV picks include Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Falling Skies and The Bible: The Epic Miniseries.

Hot music—across MP3, CD and Vinyl—from January to June 2013 ranges from Daft Punk’s electronic dance album to Cold War Kids’ punk rock beats, Justin Timberlake’s mainstream and new jazz-pop sound, country hit-maker Kacey Musgraves, as well as entries from Tegan & Sara, Vampire Weekend, David Bowie, and Phoenix, among others.

“Whether music, movies or TV, our mid-year lists highlight the diversity we see every day at Amazon,” stated Sarah Wood, head of U.S. entertainment, Amazon.com. “Our customers continue to take advantage of our broad selection of both digital and physical entertainment choices while our editors, well-versed in their specific categories, consistently provide a mix of top choices from mainstream artists and blockbuster films to under-the-radar and genre specific entertainment helping spur new discovery for customers.”
