'Dark Knight Rises' 'Homeland', 'Louie' Land On AFI's 2012 Best Of Lists

By Aly Semigran, Hollywood.com Staff

Could The Dark Knight Rises earn a Best Picture nomination and make up for its predecessor's egregious snub in 2008? While there's some heavy competition this year (the jam-packed 2012 is certainly no predictable, dull 2011) the summer blockbuster could earn a slot. The finale in Christopher Nolan's superhero saga landed on American Film Institute's 2012 Movies of the Year list.

Elsewhere, for a movie with zero right there in the title, Zero Dark Thirty is winding up on a whole lot of top 10 lists. Kathryn Bigelow's engrossing military drama about the hunt for and eventual capture of Osama bin Laden has also found its way onto AFI's. While the film is a Best Picture frontrunner, it's far from a sure thing thanks to Lincoln, Argo, Les Misérables, and quite possibly, The Dark Knight Rises, all of which made AFI's list and are hot on its tail. Check out the entire list, which includes most of this year's usual suspects, here:

AFI, which will reward their winners at a luncheon in Los Angeles on January 11, 2013, also made their choices for the top television shows of the past year. Like their movies list, television was a veritable mix of wildly popular fan favorites like Homeland, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead and critical darlings such as Louie and Mad Men.
