The American Film Institute (AFI) has released its list of the top 10 movies and TV shows of the year, with both popular and cult favorite selections in the mix.

The AFI Top 10 is something many movie and TV fans look forward to every year, particularly those who follow awards. Made up of industry experts, critics and other prominent members in show business, the AFI dissection is a particularly impressive one even among this month's slew of awards and top 10 lists.

So without further ado, here's the list of AFI's Top 10 Movies of the Year:

Arrival
Fences
Hacksaw Ridge
Hell or High Water
La La Land
Manchester by the Sea
Moonlight
Silence
Sully
Zootopia

A few of these movies have become box office hits, including Zootopia, Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge and Sully, while many of the other movies are just starting their box office runs in limited releases.

And here is the list of AFI's Top 10 TV Programs of the Year:

The Americans
Atlanta
Better Call Saul
The Crown
Game of Thrones
The Night Of
The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story

There is a strong mix of network, cable and streaming selections here, with FX impressively landing three different series in the top 10: The Americans, Atlanta and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. HBO also got in three series of their own: Game of Thrones, The Night Of and Veep.

Additionally, the organization is giving a special award to O.J.: Made in America, the eight-hour documentary covering the career of O.J. Simpson.

"Year after year, we are reminded of the power of artists to bring us together as one," said AFI president and CEO Bob Gazzale in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "AFI Awards is proud to recognize the achievements of the storytelling teams who have enlightened and informed us, guided and inspired us, and ultimately invited us to empathize with others in a reminder of our common humanity."

Those involved with the honored movies and shows will attend a special luncheon on Jan. 6 in Los Angeles.
