The American Film Institute announced their Official Selections for 2015 in movies and television. Every year AFI selects ten films and ten TV shows for their cultural and artistic contributions. This year, awards season mainstays such as Mad Max and Carol were joined by relative newcomers to the podium Straight Outta Compton and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
AMC’s hit show Mad Men was also honored with the AFI Special Award for the drama’s “contributions to America’s cultural legacy.” The awards ceremony will take place on January 8 where the jury will reveal their rationale for each selection.
