AFI releases best of 2010 lists

breaking bad

Earlier, the American Film Institute (sorry if you thought that headline was about the emo band) released its annual lists of the best in film and television for 2010. As far as movies are concerned, there aren’t a lot of surprises here, though it’s still so weird to see a threequel making so many year-end lists, even if Toy Story 3 was stellar. As far as TV, I’d say the biggest surprise would be The Walking Dead getting love despite its short season, which just wrapped up recently. What say you guys on these?

Anyway, the winners are:

AFI MOVIES OF THE YEAR
Black Swan
The Fighter
Inception
The Kids Are All Right
127 Hours
The Social Network
The Town
Toy Story 3
Winter’s Bone

AFI TV PROGRAMS OF THE YEAR
The Big C
Boardwalk Empire
Breaking Bad
Glee
Mad Men
Modern Family
The Pacific
Temple Grandin
30 Rock
The Walking Dead
