National Board of Review Announces; “Precious” Officially No Longer Frontrunner?

National Board of Review Announces; "Precious" Officially No Longer Frontrunner?

Check out the full list of winners here, with some minor commentary…. I’m off to see “The Lovely Bones,” an event that carries much less excitement than I thought it would a week ago, but briefly: the “Precious” snub (not even a top ten mention!?) has got to hurt, while there’s definitely something fishy about the “It’s Complicated” ensemble win (over “A Serious Man,” “The Hurt Locker,” “Nine”…?)

It seems like “Up In The Air,” vs. “The Hurt Locker” vs. “Invictus” is the hot new trio, at least until the Golden Globes and BFCAs have their say. I don’t think this means the end of “Precious” by any means, though, and maybe it was actually good for it to have a little stumble and feel like an underdog for a change.
