The American Film Institute has named the honorees of AFI Awards 2018, celebrating the year’s most outstanding achievements in the art of the moving image — with 10 films and 10 television programs deemed culturally and artistically significant.

In addition to the 20 honorees, AFI also recognizes "Roma" with an AFI Special Award, designated for a work of excellence outside the Institute’s criteria for American film.
