Academy Awards Assistance – Pt. 1, National Board of Review Winners

 

National Board of Review

National Board of Review

Lets be honest, most of us including me just do not have the time to see all the movies nominated for Best Picture let alone have the time to determine which screenplay will win.  Based on that premise I do a lot of guesswork, as I am sure most of you do.  

In an effort to help everyone I thought I would post a few movie awards already won earlier this year or in 2008 at the BM for your convenience so you do not have to go searching around. 

The following is a list of the awards given by THE NATIONAL BOARD OF REVIEW.  If you would like to know more about these specific awards and whom is responsible for them check out www.nbrmp.org.  Keep in mind that some of these awards are not directly relevant to the Academy Awards but you never know.
