Along with the top 10 films, AFI also recognised Alfonso Cuaron’s Netflix film Roma with a special award, to felicitate a work of excellence outside the institute’s criteria for American films.

As per Variety, the three films from AFI’s list to have crossed the $150 million at the American box office are Marvel's blockbuster film Black Panther, John Krasinski's sleeper hit A Quiet Place, starring Emily Blunt and Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga-starrer A Star Is Born.

The films that did not make the cut are Damien Chazelle’s First Man, despite garnering positive reviews from critics.
