AFI Awards sets new date for lunch postponed in the middle of the Covid wave – Deadline

UPDATED, 16:15: The American Film Institute has set a date for its AFI Awards Luncheon, which had been postponed over the Christmas week when the Omicron variant began to rise. The reception is now set for Friday 11 March at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The event was originally scheduled for January 7th.

PREVIOUS December 20: The American Film Institute (AFI) announced today that the AFI Awards lunch has been postponed. The luncheon was scheduled to take place on Friday, January 7, but due to concerns over the growing cases of Covid, AFI will reschedule the event to a later date.

“The goal of the AFI Awards is to unite the creative community at a private event founded in hugs and handshakes,” said Bob Gazzale, AFI President and CEO. “Because that goal is not achievable at this time, we will postpone the event until we can properly celebrate the artists in a way worthy of the gifts they have given the world.”

The AFI Awards honoree includes 10 outstanding films and 10 outstanding television programs that are considered culturally and artistically representative of this year’s most significant achievements in the field of moving picture art. Additional honorary recipients were selected in a category for “Special Awards,” nominated for works of excellent quality that fall outside the Department’s criteria for American film and television.

The AFI Awards honor 10 films and 10 TV shows that they considered to be most culturally relevant and artistically representative. Here is their top 10 list and the recipients of the AFI Special Award.
