14th Annual American Film Institute Awards

AFIAwards2013_logo

The American Film Institute (AFI) announced on December 9th, 2013, the official selections of AFI AWARDS 2013 – 10 outstanding films and 10 outstanding television programs deemed culturally and artistically representative of the year’s most significant achievements in the art of the moving image.

Although the list is too mainstream, there are a few films about which I feel like they shouldn’t have been there. The biggest snubs are Rush, Prisoners, Frances Ha, Upstream Color, Mud and all the Oscar shortlisted documentaries. All of them are amazing movies and any one of them could have easily replaced Saving Mr. Banks (I haven’t seen the movie yet but I don’t think I’m going to like it that much either)

Talking about the TV programs, then I don’t know what were they smoking when they included Veep, the Americans and the Good Wife on the list. They’re good shows, no doubts, but American Horror Story: Coven? Hannibal? On the other hand, thank God, they didn’t include Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on the list.
