Today, the AFI released their 10 best movies and TV shows of 2013.
The 10 best movies: 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Fruitvale Station, Gravity, Her, Inside Llewyn Davis, Nebraska, Saving Mr. Banks, The Wolf of Wall Street
The 10 best TV shows: The Americans, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Good Wife, House of Cards, Mad Men, Masters of Sex, Orange is the New Black, Scandal, VEEP
The TV show list isn’t a huge surprise (although it is interesting to note that for the first time, there are two “nontraditional” shows, both of which are on Netflix and not on TV).
The movie list is more of a surprise, though. I can’t believe that The Dallas Buyers Club isn’t on it. Granted, the only movie I’ve seen is Gravity* but I can’t imagine that TDBC doesn’t belong on that list. I haven’t heard of Her, but I am excited for seeing the other movies on that list.
* = visually stunning, excellent acting, likely to be nominated for Best Picture and Best Actress; not too likely to win.
