The American Film Institute has spoken! The organization released the honorees for the 16th annual AFI Awards yesterday, which recognizes ten of the best films and TV shows from 2015, as well as a special award for one outstanding achievement across both categories. 

Unlike other awards shows, this is not a competition. Instead, AFI "acknowledge[s] the importance of the collaborative nature of film and TV production and bring together the community’s creative teams, both in front of and behind the camera." None of the recipients are ranked, instead the winners are listed in alphabetical order. 

Below, see which films and TV shows were recognized for their cultural achievement in 2015.
