    15th Annual American Film Institute Awards 

    The American Film Institute (AFI) announced on December 8th, 2014, the official selections of AFI AWARDS 2014 – 11 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.

    The biggest surprise is that films like Gone Girl, Inherent Vice, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Lego Movie, A Most Violent Year, Wild, The Theory of Everything and Under the Skin are not in the list, instead they chose to include Into the Woods; I haven’t seen that film yet but I’m pretty sure it’s not better than the films aforementioned.

    Another surprise [shock?] is in the TV category and that is How to Get Away with Murder and Jane the Virgin making it to the list but no Louie, Rectify, The Good Wife, Masters of Sex, Hannibal, True Detective, Justified, Boardwalk Empire, Veep and House of Cards. I mean, COME ON!!!

    Here is the list of winners:

    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.

    Here is the full list of top films and TV programs of the year:

    MOVIES OF THE YEAR

    • 12 YEARS A SLAVE
    • AMERICAN HUSTLE
    • CAPTAIN PHILLIPS
    • FRUITVALE STATION
    • GRAVITY
    • HER
    • INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS
    • NEBRASKA
    • SAVING MR. BANKS
    • THE WOLF OF WALL STREET

    TV PROGRAMS OF THE YEAR

    • THE AMERICANS
    • BREAKING BAD
    • GAME OF THRONES
    • THE GOOD WIFE
    • HOUSE OF CARDS
    • MAD MEN
    • MASTERS OF SEX
    • ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK
    • SCANDAL
    • VEEP
