American Film Institute AFI top 10 movies Argo Dark Knight Rises Lincoln Zero Dark Thirty entertainment news 13579086

The American Film Institute's list of the Top 10 Films of 2012 includes a slew of likely Oscar contenders for Best Picture but not "The Master."

But this snub doesn't rule the Paul Thomas Anderson picture, which just won four awards from the LA film critics, out of Oscar contention.

Remember, last year, the AFI missed eventual Oscar nominee "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close." And, in 2006, the AFI failed to include the eventual Oscar Best Picture champ "The Departed" among its top 10. 

Of this year's top Oscar contenders, only "Amour," which just won the top prize from the LA critics, was not eligible for AFI consideration as it was foreign-made. The same fate befell last year's Best Picture winner "The Artist."

Two years ago, the AFI named nine of the eventual 10 Best Picture nominees, with only the champ -- British-made "The King's Speech" -- missing from the list. It too received a special prize. Three years ago, the AFI snubbed eventual Best Picture nominees "Avatar" and "Inglourious Basterds." 

These films, along with the winners of the TV awards, will be feted during a Jan. 11 luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.
