AFI honors 10 best in film, TV

'King's Speech' draws new special award

The AFI has weighed in with its picks for the best films and TV programs of 2010, and it has introduced a new kudo category for works that fall outside of the AFI Awards criteria for the year’s best list.

The nods for movies of the year went to “Black Swan,” “The Fighter,” “Inception,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “127 Hours,” “The Social Network,” “The Town,” “Toy Story 3,” “True Grit” and “Winter’s Bone.”

The 10 TV programs saluted were “The Big C,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “Breaking Bad,” “Glee,” “Mad Men,” “Modern Family,” “The Pacific,” “Temple Grandin,” “30 Rock” and “The Walking Dead.”

The two honorees in the new Special Awards category were “The King’s Speech,” which as a U.K. production fell outside the AFI Awards’ criteria of honoring pics with “significant creative and/or production elements from the United States”; and “Waiting for ‘Superman,'” which as a docu fell outside the kudos’ focus on narrative features.

This year’s AFI jury for film included helmer Lee Daniels and scribe Diablo Cody. The TV panel included veteran showrunner Steven Bochco and thesp Jennifer Love Hewitt.

The creative teams behind each production will be feted at a Jan. 14 awards luncheon at the Four Seasons Los Angeles hotel.
