Now the year is almost up, the American Film Institute (or the AFI, as it’s known by far more cultured folk) have divulged their picks for the best movies and TV shows to grace our presence these past 365 days, a list which choses to recognise Django Unchained and Les Miserables, though we haven’t seen them yet, and Girls, because that’s what’s cool now. “AFI Awards celebrates America’s storytellers as collaborators,” said AFI president Bob Gazzales. “We are honored to bring together artists as a community, without competition, to acknowledge the gifts they have given the world in 2012.”

Though you can read about the film list here in more detail, one which includes The Dark Knight Rises - presumably because somebody over there thought they’d be beaten to death if they didn’t make the list “edgy” and “Christopher Nolan” –  but doesn’t make room »
