The AFI announced their top 10 films yesterday. I always like their lists because they provide explanations as to why they chose these particular films – though at least this time they won’t provide the explanations until their awards ceremony on January 5. Too bad.
While they never sync up perfectly with the Academy, they’re usually decently close: last year they were 7 for 9 (missing Hidden Figures and Lion), in 2015 they went 6 for 8 (missing Brooklyn and The Revenant), and in 2014 they also went 6 for 8 (missing The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Theory of Everything).
Let’s see what they’ve got for us.
