AFI Top Ten Movies and TV: Flower Moon, Oppenheimer, Succession, Poker Face, But No Color Purple, Air, Crown, or Maisel

Share

The AFI Top Ten Movies and TV shows have been announced. The list for movie is succinct and maybe the Oscar Top 10 also. The only film I’d swap out would be “Spider Man” for “Air.” And where is The Color Purple? (I missed that the first time I read it.) Very odd on that one.

TOP 10 AFI FILMS
American Fiction
Barbie
The Holdovers
Killers of the Flower Moon
Maestro
May December
Oppenheimer
Past Lives
Poor Things
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

The top 10 TV shows exclude “The Crown,” which if the final season qualified, is a mistake. Also missing is the final season of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

TOP 10 TV SHOWS
Abbott Elementary
The Morning Show
Jury Duty
The Last of Us
Poker Face
Only Murders in the Building
Reservation Dogs
The Bear
Succession
Beef
