AFI AWARDS 2007 OFFICIAL SELECTIONS ANNOUNCED


AFI has just announced the official selections of AFI Awards 2007, AFI's almanac that records the year's most outstanding achievements in film and television. Ten AFI Movies of the Year and 10 TV Programs of the Year have just been determined by the juries.

America's cultural legacy resonates around the world through movies and television. When placed in an historical context, the stories listed below archive a complex, rich, visual record of our modern times. While I have not had the chance to watch some of these films and a couple of the shows, I definitely intend to check them out.

AFI’s mission statement is “to protect and preserve the legacy of the moving image art form so that future generations will have a greater understanding and appreciation for the proud heritage reflected in the realities of a new modern day”.

AFI AWARDS adds a volume to the history of American film and television each year by documenting the collective opinion of the moving image communities, recognizing the year's significant moments and honoring the individuals and creative ensembles that have created the year's outstanding achievements.

I am a huge fan of "Pushing Daisies", but I have never seen "Mad Men". I'll have to make a point to check it out.
