AFI Names Top 10 American Films of 2010

True Grit (2010), written and directed by the Coen brothers, second adaptation of the 1968 novel by Charles Portis, previously adapted for film in 1969 starring John Wayne.

The American Film Institute has announced its list of top 10 American features of the year, which reads like a tally of leading Oscar contenders:

1. Black Swan
2. The Fighter
3. Inception
4. The Kids Are All Right
5. 127 Hours
6. The Social Network
7. The Town
8. Toy Story 3 (animation)
9. True Grit
10. Winter’s Bone

Last year five of the AFI’s top 10 films (The Hurt Locker, Precious, Up in the Air, Up, and A Serious Man) ended up scoring Best Picture nominations (An Education and District 9 weren’t eligible, while Avatar, Inglourious Basterds, and The Blind Side were just plain snubbed).
