winners//2014 NATIONAL BOARD OF REVIEW AWARDS

AWARDS COVERAGE



The National Board of Review has been around almost as long as cinema. Since being founded in 1909, the NBR became the first group to publish a Top Ten in cinema and one of the first groups to hand out awards for motion pictures. The NBR focuses on film preservation and celebrating the ongoing advances in filmmaking.

This year's awards were announced today and will be handed out at a ceremony at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York January 6, 2015.
