‘Nope,’ ‘Elvis,’ ‘Avatar’ and ‘The Woman King’ Among AFI Awards’ Best Movies of the Year

Nope

In a week chock-full of awards announcements, AFI has revealed their Top 10s for both film and television and while there were many titles we’ve come to expect (“Everything Everywhere All at Once”, “The Fabelmans”, “Hacks”, “Better Call Saul”), there were just as many that were nice surprises on the lists, especially for TV (“Nope”, “Mo”, “Pachinko”, “Somebody Somewhere”, “Reservation Dogs”). Martin McDonagh’s “The Banshees of Inisherin” is to receive a special award from AFI this year as well.

Film titles assumed to be on the list but which did not make a showing are “Babylon”, “The Whale”, “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”. Television programs overlooked included critical darlings “Bad Sisters”, “Black Bird” and “Ramy”, not to mention major hits like “House of the Dragon”, “The Watcher”, “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” and the “Dahmer” miniseries.

Here are the AFI selections for 2022:
