Ledger-Enquirer - - Television -

“Black Pan­ther,” “A Star Is Born” and “Mary Pop­pins Re­turns” are among the Amer­i­can Film In­sti­tute’s top 10 films of the year.

AFI an­nounced its se­lec­tions for the 19th AFI Awards Tues­day, rec­og­niz­ing works deemed cul­tur­ally and ar­tis­ti­cally sig­nif­i­cant by a jury of AFI trustees, schol­ars and crit­ics.

The se­lected films in­clude the afore­men­tioned block­busters, the hor­ror film “A Quiet Place,” “The Favourite,” Barry Jenk­ins’ James Bald­win adap­ta­tion “If Beale Street Could Talk,” Bo Burn­ham’s com­ing-of-age film “Eighth Grade,” “BlacKkKlans­man,” “First Re­formed,” and “Green Book.”

The or­ga­ni­za­tion is also giv­ing a spe­cial award to Al­fonso Cuaron’s “Roma,” which did not fit the cri­te­ria for Amer­i­can films

AFI also rec­og­nizes 10 tele­vi­sion shows, in­clud­ing “At­lanta” and “The Amer­i­cans.”

The hon­orees will be rec­og­nized at a Los An­ge­les lun­cheon on Jan. 4.
