The AFI Awards tributes will take place on February 26 with a virtual event on AFI’s YouTube channel and on AFI.com.
The American Film Institute has announced its 2020 award winners for the 10 best movies and TV shows of the year, according to Deadline.
Netflix topping the list with four films, a record haul for the platform with Da 5 Bloods, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Mank and The Trial of the Chicago 7.
The AFI also chose two films from Amazon — Sound of Metal and One Night in Miami — to go with four from major Hollywood powerhouses: Disney’s Soul, A24’s Minari, Searchlight’s Nomadland and Warner Bros.’ Judas and the Black Messiah.
Netflix dominated the television side as well, with Bridgerton, The Crown, The Queen’s Gambit and Unorthodox all securing spots.
Speaking about the awards, Bob Gazzale, AFI president and CEO said: “For 20 years, AFI Awards has been a moment to gather artists in one room with a singular goal – to create a community over competition. This year we cannot gather but will instead celebrate each honoree by creating exclusive content to be shared with a global audience through AFI Movie Club, shining a proper light on excellence.”
