After a killer $70 million opening weekend, Rian Johnson’s star-studded murder/mystery Knives Out is starting to reel in the acclaims.

After an extremely successful run of film festival appearances and early screenings, the raving reviews both from critics and word-of-mouth seemed to have worked as the Thrombey’s story took off over the Thanksgiving weekend. And now, with awards season upon us, it’s time to see who else this film has charmed.

The American Film Institute has awarded Knives Out as one of the year’s most outstanding films. The AFI AWARDS honor the 10 most outstanding films and television programs “deemed culturally and artistically representative of this year’s most significant achievements in the art of the moving image.” Knives Out joins, 1917, The Farewell, The Irishman, Jojo Rabbit, Joker, Little Women, Marriage Story, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, and Richard Jewell as this year’s honorees.
