The American Film Institute named its 2009 awards for “most outstanding achievements in film and television” in front of and behind the cameras. Top films are The Hurt Locker, Coraline, The Hangover (which was a funny movie but no way an “outstanding achievement”), The Messenger, Precious, A Serious Man, A Single Man, Sugar, Up, and Up In The Air. Top TV shows are The Big Bang Theory, Big Love, Friday Night Lights, Glee, Mad Men, Modern Family, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, Nurse Jackie, Party Down, and True Blood. AFI will honor the creative ensembles in LA on January 15th.
