The American Film Institute (AFI) has announced the official selections of AFI AWARDS 2008, including their annual top ten list. Selections are made through AFI's 13-person jury process in which "scholars, film artists, critics and AFI trustees discuss, debate and determine the most outstanding achievements of the year, as well as provide a detailed rationale for each selection." The top ten are, in alphabetical order: "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "The Dark Knight," "Frost/Nixon," "Frozen River," "Gran Torino," "Iron Man," "Milk," "WALL-E," "Wendy and Lucy" and "The Wrestler." AFI will honor the creative ensembles for each of the selections at a luncheon on Friday, January 9, 2009 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles, California.
