The National Board of Review has announced their honors for 2011. As always, the wide selection allows the NBR to technically have a say in directing awards season, and their picks remain solid. While I didn’t go nuts over Hugo, a lot of people did and so it’s not surprising NBR gave it Best Picture and named Martin Scorsese as Best Director. For the most part, I like all of NBR’s choices. I’m glad any time Drive gets attention, the acting picks are all worthy, and I’m happy Crime After Crime and 13 Assassins got some love. Notable snubs include Young Adult, Moneyball, and Martha Marcy May Marlene. Of course, anything Clint Eastwood does has to make NBR’s Top 10 so that’s why a spot is wasted on J. Edgar.
