    The American Film Institute named its best films for 2008 on Sunday afternoon and the big winners were "WALL-E," the Disney/Pixar animated romantic comedy about a lovable robot, and "Gran Torino," Clint Eastwood's drama about a widowed bigot who faces his own prejudices.

    The AFI Awards 2008 also recognized a pair of television programs, both critically acclaimed cable cop dramas which concluded this year: FX's "The Shield" and HBO's " The Wire."

    Besides "Wall-E" and "Gran Torino," AFI rounded out its 10 outstanding films of the year with the fable-like "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"; the Batman adventure "The Dark Knight"; the historical drama "Frost/Nixon"; a tale of illegal immigrant smuggling, "Frozen River"; the comic book adventure "Iron Man"; the portrayal of slain gay-rights activist Harvey Milk's life, "Milk"; a drama about a woman and her dog, "Wendy and Lucy"; and a drama about an aging athlete who won't quit, "The Wrestler."
