American Film Institute Awards Cite The Ten Best Films Of 2020


The American Film Institute (better known as AFI) announced their ten best films of the year today, putting another dent in the precursor season. While they obviously had to snub a few titles, with Promising Young Woman being the main one to feel the pinch, the ten movies they did select definitely seem to be in the upper echelon of the awards hunt. Will the ten flicks be the ones Oscar chooses from for their Best Picture nominees? That very well may be the case, as at least seven or eight of the cited films are on nearly every predictions list. Read on to find out what AFI picked as their favorites for 2020 (and technically the first two months of 2021, of course). It’s a really strong lineup, even with the snubs…

Here are the AFI citations:
