    Top 10 AFI films and TV for 2007 named

    This falls in both the TV and movie category so I've just put it here.

    Noticed one film in the list that us Disney fans will be happy to see ...

    Ratatouille.

    And two TV shows that we like to talk about in the TV forum ...

    Ugly Betty and (my personal favorite) Pushing Daisies.

    Unplanned pregnancy, greed and facing incredible personal challenges were a few recurring themes among the America Film Institute's picks for the best films of the year.

    AFI released its Top 10 film and TV lists for 2007 on Sunday, Dec. 16. Among the lauded movies were the prenatal comedies "Knocked Up" and "Juno." Somehow, Adrienne Shelley's posthumously released "Waitress" starring Keri Russell was woefully overlooked among these.

    Less life-affirming were the themes of greed and occasional bloodshed that were apparent in films like the Coen Bros.' violent "No Country for Old Men," "There Will Be Blood," "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead" and "Michael Clayton."

    Also making the list was Pixar's culinary animated feature "Ratatouille," "The Savages," "Into the Wild" and "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly."

    AFI also saw fit to recognize the achievements on the small screen. Returning favorites include Showtime's "Dexter" and NBC's "Friday Night Lights." Also making the list were "Everybody Hates Chris," "Longford," "Mad Men," "Pushing Daisies," "The Sopranos," "Tell Me You Love Me," "30 Rock" and "Ugly Betty."

    The awards, which recognize the creative teams behind each of the projects, will be presented at a Jan. 11 luncheon at Los Angeles' Four Seasons Hotel.

    Just a question: Isn't 'Sweeney Todd' up for an award too? I can't remember, where I saw it, but I was suprised. The movie just opened, today! I'm with the nomination of 'RataTouille'. It was quite a movie, and far above the others! I'm pretty sure it will win a Golden Globe and go on to win the Oscar!

    Ok, misspelled 'Ratatouille'! My French is terrible, even with an example!

    I believe Sweeney Todd (which had its premiere already and therefore is considered to be "released") is nominated for a ton of Golden Globes. There are so many award shows coming up soon that's it's hard to keep them all straight The news item I posted was about AFI's top ten list. Not exactly an awards show though they do have an "awards" luncheon. I don't think this one is televised which considering the writer's strike is probably a good thing.

    By the way, glad to see you've joined MiceChat, Gail. Welcome aboard

    I can't comment on the movies since I haven't seen all of them ... but as for TV I still don't get the love for 30 Rock over The Office.

    I've been meaning to give it another shot since I only saw the first few episodes. Is it really that good?

    I agree with you 100%. I love The Office and for Steve Carell not to win Best Actor at a lot of these award shows is just wrong.
