AFI Names Top Ten Movies, TV Shows: “12 Years a Slave,” “Fruitvale,” “Mad Men,” “House of Cards” Among Winners

Share

The American Film Institute has come up with their list of the top 10 movies and TV shows for 2013. It’s a pretty good list, not necessarily an Oscar predictor, but close enough. The TV list has only two network TV shows, “The Good Wife” and “Scandal.” That says a lot about the state of television. Missing from the movie list are “Blue Jasmine,” “The Butler,” “Lone Survivor,” “August Osage County,” “Dallas Buyers Club,” “All is Lost,” and “Enough Said.” (“Philomena” is a British movie and disqualified.)
