The American Film Institute – known to most as the org that broadcast Top 100 Movie list specials at the turn of the century – announced their 18th Annual AFI Awards, which includes a Top 10 List for the year’s best movies.
With no categories like Best Actor, Actress, Director, etc., the AFI is much less of an Oscar harbinger than other critics/awards groups are.
Notable omissions? Darkest Hour, the Winston Churchill biopic, and Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Phantom Thread starring Daniel Day-Lewis in his final screen role.
Notable inclusion: definitely Wonder Woman, which was the year’s most relevant blockbuster.
Here are the AFI choices for the 10 Best Movies of 2017 (listed in alphabetical order):
AFI Movies of the Year 2017
The Big Sick
Call Me By Your Name
The Florida Project
The Shape of Water
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
