The American Film Institute released their lists of the top movies and TV shows of the year. And they take this stuff seriously.

According to their website, the "honorees" are, "deemed by AFI's Jury to be culturally and artistically representative of the year's most significant achievements," and "acknowledge the collaborative nature of film and TV production, bringing the community's creative teams together in a unique celebration of their work."
