Amidst all the awards hoopla, leave it to the AFI to get everyone to just chill out. The organization doesn’t give traditional awards, but rather honors 10 films and 10 television programs equally. The stars show up for the annual luncheon, which this year boasted a menu of Lake Superior whitefish, truffle herb mashed potatoes, and chocolate cake. Please forgive the peasants – everyone knows the place for superior whitefish is the Harlem Fairway.

Highlight of the event – definitely PTA’s hat/sweater ensemble. Adorable.

The AFI honored the following 10 films: Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Into the Wild, Juno, Knocked Up, Michael Clayton, No Country for Old Men, Ratatouille, The Savages, and There Will Be Blood.

TV programs receiving honors were: Dexter, Everybody Hates Chris, Friday Night Lights, Longford, Mad Men, Pushing Daisies, The Sopranos, Tell Me You Love Me, 30 Rock, and Ugly Betty.
