AFI Awards 2011 Names 'Dragon Tattoo', 'J. Edgar' and More as Movies of the Year
Aside from choosing 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', the J. Edgar biopic and eight others as top films in 2011, AFI also picks up 'The Artist' and the 'Harry Potter' series for the Special Awards.


The American Film Institute (AFI) has, on Sunday, December 11, revealed its top ten Movies of the Year for AFI Awards 2011. Among the ten qualified feature films chosen for the annual awards were mind-bending thriller "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)" and FBI director biopic "J. Edgar".

"Dragon Tattoo" was not the only yet-to-be-released film that has made it to the top ten picks. Steven Spielberg's upcoming drama "War Horse" also made it into the list, which is dominated by drama movies but still includes Kristen Wiig-starring romantic comedy "Bridesmaids".

In addition to Movies of the Year list, AFI has chosen "The Artist" and the "Harry Potter" film series to receive the Special Awards. The awards are given to those outstanding achievements in the motion picture that do not match AFI's standard criteria, which include feature-length films, American-base films and theatrically-released films in Los Angeles.

Aside from the Movies of the Year and Special Awards winners, AFI announced the TV Programs of the Year as well, seeing "Game of Thrones", "Boardwalk Empire" and "Homeland" among the top ten. The trophies will be presented to the winners during a ceremony on January 13, 2012 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles.
