2010 National Board of Review Awards Winners
The National Board of Review (NBR) Awards are significant in being the first of the major critics’ awards to be handed out over the next few months. They are often a bellwether for the year’s Academy Award-nominated selections. This year the NBR screened over 250 films including studio, independent, foreign-language, animated and documentary selections.
“This year the NBR honored The Social Network, as well as its director David Fincher, lead actor Jesse Eisenberg and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin,” said NBR President Annie Schulhof. “We believe the film portrays a dramatic story that will stand up over time and appeal to many generations.”
