The American Film Institute has thrown an awards lifeline to The Dark Knight Rises.

The group doesn’t choose a best picture, it only ranks the 10 best movies of the year and lists them alphabetically, and this year’s list could easily mirror the eventual best-picture field for the Academy Awards. The six locks for a nomination — Argo, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty — are all on AFI’s list.

But the Oscars could select anywhere from five to 10 nominees, and with so many worthy contenders this year the list is likely to go long. »
