The AFI (American Film Institute) listed it’s Top 10 films of the year, and there weren’t a lot of surprises to be had. Many of the films currently stand as front runners for the top 10 in the Best Picture category for this year’s Academy Awards. A couple however weren’t eligible, including The King’s Speech which is a British film. However, the film was awarded a special jury prize.

The AFI also put up a list of their top 10 television programs of the year. Many of the shows had already been rewarded earlier this year during the Emmy’s, but a couple including The Walking Dead and Boardwalk Empire will not be eligible until next year’s awards. Are we getting a peek to further into next year?
