Winners // 2018 NATIONAL BOARD OF REVIEW AWARDS

Updated: Nov 28, 2018

A Star is Born earns wins in multiple categories.



Though it is traditionally not a great indicator of what film will go on to win the Best Picture Oscar, the National Board of Review's annual awards do give a push for the film which wins its Best Film prize. This year, that film is Green Book.


The film, directed by Peter Farrelly, also received a win for Best Actor (Viggo Mortensen).


Despite winning Best Film, Green Book did not receive the most awards. A Star is Born won two acting awards, plus the award for directing. Barry Jenkin's If Beale Street Could Talk also picked up two honors.


While celebrating Green Book gives that film an increase in buzz, the most notable thing from this year's awards are the films that were left out of individual prizes and/or the Top Ten lists. The Favourite, considered on the top contenders for the Academy Awards, didn't earn a single award or mention. Neither did Damien Chazelle's First Man.


The honorees will all be feted at a gala in January at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York. MBC News' Willie Geist will host the event.
