“AFI AWARDS is a moment for the most accomplished storytellers of 2013 to pause and be appreciated – not as competitors, but as a community,” said Bob Gazzale, AFI President & CEO. “Acknowledging their collective contributions to America’s rich cultural legacy is both AFI’s national mandate – and our honor.”

While the list might not have much impact on the Oscar race, it might have an impact on Lee Daniels’ The Butler, which has been considered a frontrunner since the first Feinberg Forecast was posted this awards season and is still listed as such in the most recent one posted by THR awards analyst Scott Feinberg.

Netflix got some positive news with the inclusion of both House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. The lack of Homeland shows how many critics and fans feel about this season.
