Here Are The AFI’s Top Ten of 2019

The American Film Institute released their picks for the 10 best American films of 2019.  The AFI list is usually a pretty good indicator of what’s going to be nominated for best picture.  While it’s rare that every film on the AFI’s list gets a best picture nomination, it’s even more rare for a film to get a nomination without also appearing on the list.  (Then again, it has happened in the past so who knows?  Life is a mystery, as Doc Bowman likes to put it.)

So, with that in mind, here’s the AFI list.  You’ll notice no mention of Uncut Gems, The Two Popes, or Hustlers.  However, Joker made it so maybe that’ll shut up everyone on twitter whose complaining about Joaquin Phoenix not winnings the NYFCC’s best actor award.  (Probably not.)


“The Farewell”

“The Irishman”

“Jojo Rabbit”


“Knives Out”

“Little Women”

“Marriage Story”


“Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood”

“Richard Jewell”



(As South Korean film, Parasite was not eligible for the regular AFI honors — hence, the special award.)
