A select group of knowledgeable film enthusiasts and professionals, academics, young filmmakers and students, the National Board of Review viewed over 250 films in 2015 including studio, independent, foreign-language, animated and documentary selections.
These screenings were frequently followed by in-depth discussions with filmmakers, directors, actors, producers, and screenwriters. Voting ballots were tabulated by the accounting firm of Lutz & Carr, LLP.
The National Board of Review honors diverse members of the film community at their annual Awards Gala. Hosted by Willie Geist, the 2015 Awards Gala gala took place on January 5, 2016 at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.
“2015 has been a banner year for popular cinema,” said NBR President Annie Schulhof. “We are thrilled to be awarding George Miller and Ridley Scott, two iconic filmmakers at the top of their game, while also celebrating the next generation of talent.”See The Winners
