AFI Announces 2021 Award Honors

Awards season is in full swing with the American Film Institute (AFI) announcing their picks for the best of the year in American television and film. The ten honorees for each category are awarded for being “culturally and artistically representative of this year’s most significant achievements of art and the moving image.” As always, it’s a mix of the expected players, along with one or two potential surprises.

The AFI awards are as follows:

AFI Movies of the Year

Coda

Don’t Look Up

Dune

King Richard

Licorice Pizza

Nightmare Alley

The Power of the Dog

tick, tick… BOOM!

The Tragedy of MacBeth

West Side Story

AFI Television Programs of the Year

Maid

Mare of Easttown

Reservation Dogs

Schmigadoon!

Succession

Ted Lasso

The Underground Railroad

Wandavision

The White Lotus

AFI Special Award

Belfast

Squid Game

Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)

The AFI awards are often a strong indicator of what may be to come during the film and television awards each year. Though not as impactful as the guild nominations, look out for these titles as Oscar voting approaches.

These honorees will be celebrated January 7, 2022.
