“Bridesmaids” a surprise selection to AFI Top 10 – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: Can “Bridesmaids” sneak into this year’s Best Picture race?

It’s unlikely, though the summer smash that has been receiving a fair amount of awards buzz (mainly for co-star Melissa McCarthy) picked up another vote of confidence when it was included in the American Film Institute’s top 10 for 2011 on Sunday.

Then again, so did Clint Eastwood’s “J. Edgar,” so this might mean nothing.

The other nine films named to the AFI Top 10 were:
“The Descendants”
“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”
“The Help”
“J. Edgar”
“Hugo”
“Midnight in Paris”
“Moneyball”
“The Tree of Life”
“War Horse”

Most are legitimate Oscar contenders. But that means other Oscar hopefuls were left on the outside looking in, including “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close,” “Beginners,” “Drive,” and “Young Adult.”

The “Harry Potter” series, also hoping to get into the Oscar mix, took home a special award.
