Home Movies AFI Chooses Top 10 TV & Film: “Roma” Gets A Special Prize,...

For what it’s worth, the American Film Institute chose its top 10 movies and TV shows of 2018. Alfonso Cuaron’s “Roma” not only won a spot in the top 10 but got a special prize, too. I must say, “Roma” is playing Hollywood like a fiddle. It’s as if everyone is under a spell. It’s a great movie, but seriously– a special award, too?

The big disappointment? “First Man,” which I loved, was snubbed. The AFI went for smart horror again with “A Quiet Place” after last year’s “Get Out.” Also in is “Black Panther,” reflecting a change in the attitude toward comic book movies.

“This is Us” was the only network TV show to make that list.
