AFI Announces Top Ten of 2008

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.
