American Film Institute 2010 Selections: Black Swan, Boardwalk Empire

Boardwalk Empire.

The American Film Institute announced its 2010 selections today for its almanac of the year's "most outstanding achievements in film and television." The selections are determined by a small jury of film industry players, academics, and critics — which, this year, included Diablo Cody, Lee Daniels, Leonard Maltin, and Jennifer Love Hewitt — who duke it out until they determine the winners. And, unlike with other awards ceremonies, AFI's selected works win by just being nominated: They're all being recognized, honored, and added to the almanac. Below, see if you agree with AFI's picks. No shockers in the bunch, but congrats to:
