'Zero Dark Thirty' Leads National Board of Review Winners

Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" followed-up its big win at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards by topping the National Board of Review's winners. The film took best picture, director and actress (Jessica Chastain) honors.

"Thirty" was joined on the NBR's top ten list with "Argo," "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Django Unchained," "Les Miserables,""Lincoln," "Looper," "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," "Promised Land" and "Silver Linings Playbook." Notably absent from that top ten was "Life of Pi" and "The Master."

Other major winner included  "Silver Linings Playbook," which both took best actor (Bradley Cooper) and best adapted screenplay (David O. Russell) honors. Leonardo DiCaprio was named best supporting actor for "Django Unchained," while the biggest (and nicest) surprise of the list was Ann Dowd winning best supporting actress for "Compliance."

    compare the independent films list to others, and this one looks like a joke.

  • liz | December 5, 2012 7:04 PMReply

    On The Road should NOT even be on the list. Where is Holy Motors, Amour, Rust and Bone?

  • bob hawk | December 5, 2012 5:10 PMReply

    Hooray for Ann Dowd! (from a longtime fan)

  • A140 | December 5, 2012 3:10 PMReply

    LOOPER over LIFE OF PI ?! I can't even imagine how big that check was.

  • Thomasi | December 5, 2012 2:43 PMReply

    Okay, first of all, the story indicates that "Argo" is "notably absent from the top ten", and then the list you show has "Argo" right at the top. Which is it? Notably absent or notably present?

    And secondly (this is directed at the NBR) what possible rationale is there in making separate lists for indie and studio films, especially knowing that the studio list will be reported as their official top ten?

  • Roobert | December 5, 2012 3:19 PM

    I believe the rationale is that the top ten is just that, a top ten. Not a separate list for the best studio films. For example "Perks of Being a Wallflower" and "Beasts" I don't think are considered studio films. The independent films list is probably just to shine a spotlight on smaller films that didn't break the top 10 but still got plenty of votes. Or something I like that.

  • Peter Knegt | December 5, 2012 2:56 PM

    The Argo error was corrected... It was indeed in the top 10. Apologies!

  • Maxim | December 5, 2012 2:41 PMReply

    I do believe "Argo" did place in their top 10 though.

  • Maxim | December 5, 2012 2:37 PMReply

    They could have rewarded something truly great in Lincoln. They opted to reward something that exploits history instead of exploring it.
