The American Film Institute has announced its annual Top 10 lists. In the film category, this awards season’s usual suspects popped up as Zero Dark Thirty, Lincoln, Argo, Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook made the cut alongside Django Unchained and Moonrise Kingdom. AFI is notable for also including a few popular titles on their lists (last year Bridesmaids and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo landed in the Top 10), and this year is no exception as fan-favorite The Dark Knight Rises nabbed a spot. Notably absent, though, is Paul Thomas Anderson’s polarizing drama The Master.
On the TV side of things, Emmy-winner Homeland made the cut as well as Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Louie, The Walking Dead, and FX’s American Horror Story. AMC’s Mad Men landed on the list for a fifth time, making it the most recognized AFI Awards TV honoree in history. Hit the jump to check out the full Top 10’s for both TV and Film.
