Judd Apatow's 'Knocked Up' found a berth
on the AFI's top 10 feature list for 2007.

“Knocked Up,” “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead” and “The Savages” each got a hug from the American Film Institute, which on Sunday announced its top 10 film and TV lists for 2007.

Also making the feature list were “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,” “Juno,” “Into the Wild,” “Michael Clayton,” “No Country for Old Men,” “Ratatouille” and “There Will Be Blood.”

On the TV side, “Dexter,” “Everybody Hates Chris,” “Friday Night Lights,” “Longford,” “Mad Men,” “Pushing Daisies,” “The Sopranos,” “Tell Me You Love Me,” “30 Rock” and “Ugly Betty” were cited.

The AFI Awards are voted on by two 13-member jury panels (one for film, one for TV), mixing scholars, critics and AFI trustees. The org’s annual luncheon honoring the chosen titles will take place on Jan. 11 at the Four Seasons.
