The annual list--which is in no particular order--is put together by a panel of moviemakers, reviewers and academics, and is usually hailed as an indicator of which films will triumph during the forthcoming awards season.
However, most notable in this year's compilation is the absence of several major movies including Atonement, Charlie Wilson's War and American Gangster--all of which received multiple nominations for the 2008 Golden Globe Awards.
The AFI has also named its picks for the top TV shows of the year, with Ugly Betty, 30 Rock and The Sopranos making the list. Other shows featured include Dexter, Everybody Hates Chris, Friday Night Lights, Longford, Mad Men, Pushing Daisies and Tell Me You Love Me.
