The American Film Institute (AFI) has finally released its annual list of this year’s top ten movies along with the list of the best TV shows.

According to Variety, the recipients of the 2019 AFI Awards for movies include Sam Mendes’ World War I drama “1917,” Taika Waititi’s satirical black comedy “Jojo Rabbit,” Rian Johnson’s murder mystery “Knives Out,” and Greta Gerwig’s film adaptation of “Little Women.”

Martin Scorsese’s epic gangster film “The Irishman” has also been included in the coveted list. Previously, the National Board of Review announced it as the best movie of the year. The crime drama also won the award for Best Adapted Screenplay, with director Scorsese and actors Al Pacino and Robert De Niro set to receive the Icon Award.

Another movie that made the cut is none other than Todd Phillips’ “Joker.”Even after controversies, the movie turned out to be a massive hit at the box office. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, the film has accumulated more than $1 billion worldwide and has become the first-ever R-Rated movie to reach the billion mark.

Adam Driver’s “Marriage Story” has also been named one of the top movies of 2019. Helmed by Academy Award-nominated director Noah Baumbach, the movie revolves around a stage director and his actor wife who struggle through a grueling, coast-to-coast divorce that pushes them to their personal and creative extremes.

Driver recently won the Best Actor trophy for the movie at the Gotham Awards and is one of the top contenders for getting an Oscar nod at the 92nd Academy Awards.

“The Farewell,” “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” and “Richard Jewell” rounded off the top ten.

Meanwhile, South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho’s “Parasite” will receive a special award because it falls outside the organization’s criteria for American films and TV shows.

On the television side, the organization recognized “Chernobyl,” “Game of Thrones,” “Veep,” and “Succession” as some of the winners.

Netflix’s drama series “When They See Us” is one of the shows that created an impact on the jury. Directed by Ava DuVernay, the shows tells the story of five teens (The Exonerated Five) from Harlem who were falsely accused of sexual assault and murder in Central Park. The mini-series received universal acclaim and has a 96 percent score on review site Rotten Tomatoes.

The other TV shows on the list are “The Crown,” “Fosse/Verdon,” “Pose,” “Unbelievable,” and “Watchmen.” Just like "Parasite," Phoebe Waller-Bridge's "Fleabag" was given the special award in the TV category.

The ceremony of this year’s AFI Awards will take place in Los Angeles on Jan. 3, 2020.
