Rolling Stone magazine revealed its "Best of" list for 2011. Adele picked up Best Single for "Rolling in the Deep" from the year's best album, "21." The editors of the magazine also made their picks for the year's top ten films.
Ryan Gosling's crime drama "Drive" took the checkered flag while Brad Pitt's efforts were rewarded twice, with a No. 4 showing with "Moneyball" and a No. 9 finish with Terence Malick's trippy "The Tree of Life." The throw-back black and white period piece "The Artist" came in at No. 2 while George Clooney's "The Decendants" ranked in third place. Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" rounded out the top five.
The final slot in the top 10 was a three-way tie: Steven Spielberg's "War Horse," director Tate Taylor's "The Help," and David Yates' final film in the series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2."
