Now that awards season is upon us, many people are weighing in on what their favorite movies of the year were! Despite being a very busy man, Barack Obama was able to take in a movie or two and weighed in on the tough competition during an interview with People.

The president's pick? Boyhood!

"Boyhood was a great movie," he tells the magazine. "That, I think, was my favorite movie this year."

But his wife, Michelle Obama, didn't agree with his pick. The first lady wasn't as excited about this year's film options, but was able to come up with one. But she added an asterisk to her selection.

"I've read others since, but I read Gone Girl a couple summers ago, which is one of my favorites. The book is much better than the movie."

We're sure there are a ton of Gillian Flynn readers who would agree, but there was a special surprise in the movie that you couldn't see in the book that we enjoyed! We're looking at you, Ben Affleck.

Boyhood has been a popular choice for many people, including those who nominate films for awards! So far, the Richard Linklater-directed film has been seemingly dominating the competition. Boyhood has pulled in nominations from the Critics' Choice Movie Awards for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor/Actress, Ensemble, Director and a whole bunch of other categories.
