National Board of Review Film Winners

The National Board of Review is not made up of critics, but of “a select group of knowledgeable film enthusiasts and professionals, academics, young filmmakers and students” in the New York area. It owes its high profile in the awards picture to the fact that it has been picking the year’s best films since 1930, and that it had typically been the first body to announce its awards until the New York Film Critics Circle moved up its announcement a couple of years ago.

The NBR will hold its awards gala in New York City on Jan. 8, 2013. Read More
