The American Film Institute has chosen their Top 10 Films of the Year. This is something they've been doing for about a decade now. In fact, to be exact, this is the 13th year that they've done this. It's actually a decently big deal to be chosen, as the selections are made by a jury process with involved film scholars, producers, actors, critics, and the AFI Broad of trustees. And their selections for the Best Films of 2012 are...
ARGO -- (Ben Affleck)
BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD -- (Benh Zeitlin)
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES -- (Christopher Nolan)
DJANGO UNCHAINED -- (Quentin Tarantino)
LES MISERABLES -- (Tom Hooper)
LIFE OF PI -- (Ang Lee)
LINCOLN -- (Steven Spielberg)
MOONRISE KINGDOM -- (Wes Anderson)
SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK -- (David O. Russell)
ZERO DARK THIRTY -- (Kathryn Bigelow)
And for those interested, here are their choices for the 10 best television shows as well...
