The American Film Institute has unveiled its choices for the year’s 10 best films and 10 best TV shows.
The AFI Awards for films, which fete both Hollywood tentpoles and indie fare, goes to American Fiction, Barbie, The Holdovers, Killers of the Flower Moon, Maestro, May December, Oppenheimer, Past Lives, Poor Things and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
On the TV front, the 2023 AFI Awards go to Abbott Elementary, The Bear, Beef, Jury Duty, The Last of Us, The Morning Show, Only Murders in the Building, Poker Face, Reservations Dogs and Succession.
The honorees will be recognized at a private reception on Jan. 12, 2024, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.
The intimate and non-competitive AFI Awards show each year draws the biggest creative and industry names in Hollywood to salute the year’s best offerings from the film and TV industry.
“As our nation and our world continue to navigate difficult times, AFI is honored to shine a proper light upon these works of art that lift us up and, ultimately, lead us to empathy,” Bob Gazzale, AFI president and CEO, said in a statement on Thursday.
“That we do so without competition is AFI’s hallmark, and we are proud to gather this community of artists together – as one – to celebrate their extraordinary contributions to our time,” Gazzale added.
The AFI Awards, chosen by a jury comprising AFI trustees, artists, critics and scholars, honor creative teams as a whole by recognizing those in front of and behind the camera.
