    American Film Institute names top 2006 films
    The musical “Dreamgirls,” the Sept. 11 drama “United 93” and the outrageous comedy “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan” were among the American Film Institute’s picks Sunday for the top 10 films of 2006.

    Also among the AFI’s top 10: the ensemble story “Babel,” the fashion-world satire “The Devil Wears Prada,” the gritty classroom drama “Half Nelson,” the animated penguin romp “Happy Feet,” the bank-heist thriller “Inside Man,” the World War II saga “Letters From Iwo Jima,” and the road-trip tale “Little Miss Sunshine.”

    The AFI does not rank its picks for best films of the year. The list was chosen by a panel of 13 filmmakers, critics, scholars and AFI trustees. This year’s panel included directors Michael Apted and James L. Brooks, writer-producer Diana Ossana and Los Angeles Times critic Kenneth Turan.

    A separate AFI panel that included producers Steven Bochco and Kevin S. Bright picked the group’s choices for top-10 television shows of the year: “Battlestar Galactica,” “Dexter,” “Elizabeth I,” “Friday Night Lights,” “Heroes,” “The Office,” “South Park,” “24,” “The West Wing” and “The Wire.”

    The films and shows will be honored at an AFI luncheon Jan. 12 in Los Angeles.
