The American Film Institute has picked the best films of 2010.
AFI put out its list of the top 10 films of the year. They include what many critics believe to be Oscar contenders.
The list is as follows: Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, The Kids Are All Right, 127 Hours, The Social Network, The Town, Toy Story 3, True Grit, and Winter’s Bone.
In the past 10 years, seven of the films on the AFI Top 10 list have won the Oscar for Best Picture. And every year, several of the films on the list have been nominated for an Oscar or won an Oscar in another category.
Two films were given special awards because they were ineligible for the list. The King’s Speech was ineligible because it is not an American-made film and Waiting for Superman was ineligible because it is a documentary.
They also released their list of top 10 TV series of the year. It includes The Walking Dead, Glee, and Boardwalk Empire.
