    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.
