I forgot that Iron Man made it in 2008. The just proves that AFI's top ten doesn't mean Oscar nom for best picture.
How does that prove anything? The nominees were extended because of TDK wasn't nominated, but that was in the same year as IM was released as well. Who knows if IM would have been nominated.
Although, to give us a clue of how AFI's lists fits into the Oscars nominees for Best Film(the bold represents what films were indeed nominated):
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
Midnight in Paris
The Tree of Life
The Kids Are All Right
The Social Network
Toy Story 3
The Hurt Locker
A Serious Man
A Single Man
Up In The Air
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
The Dark Knight
Wendy and Lucy
