AFI announces their Top Ten Films of 2009

The American Film Institute announced its top ten films of the year.  The films include:

– A Serious Man
– A Single Man
– Coraline
– The Hangover
– The Hurt Locker
– The Messanger
– Precious
– Sugar
– Up
– Up in the Air

To me, I was surprised that such an unknown film like Sugar made AFI’s list.  Also, the inclusion of The Hangover really shocked me.  To think that the film institute picked The Hangover over other films like Invictus, Avatar, 500 Days of Summer, Inglourious Basterds, etc. is very mind-boggling.

What does this mean for the Academy Awards Best Picture race?  Probably not much… but as we near the voting process, it’s hard to imagine that there won’t be a few head-scratchers with ten nominations this year.  All I have to say is that I really hope The Hangover doesn’t get a Best Picture nomination.
