The American Film Institute (AFI) announced its annual list of top ten films and tv shows with critically acclaimed films such as “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and “Call Be By Your Name” as well as audience favorite “Wonder Woman” making the cut.
Most of the films recognized by AFI this year has been making the rounds in the awards circuit so far, including “The Post,” “Call Me By Your Name,” “Get Out” and “Lady Bird,” which recently won New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Film.
Historically, AFI is a pretty good indicator of the eventual Oscar nominees: last year, AFI named seven of the nine Best Picture nominees in their year end list including Moonlight which won the big prize.
In addition to the movie and TV honorees, Ken Burns’ 10-part documentary series “The Vietnam War” is also being recognized the AFI Special Award.
On the TV side, hit series “Game of Thrones” and “Stranger Things 2,” made the list as expected as well as recent Emmy winners “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Big Little Lies.”
Each year, AFI recognizes the year’s most culturally and artistically significant films and television programs with AFI AWARDS. An almanac documenting works of excellence that defined the storytelling landscape of the past year, AFI AWARDS is the only national honor for the entertainment community’s creative teams as a whole — recognizing the collaborative nature of the art form.
Here’s this year’s AFI list:
Call Be By Your Name
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
The Shape of Water
The Florida Project
The Big Sick
Big Little Lies
Feud: Bette and Joan
