A select group of knowledgeable film enthusiasts and professionals, academics, young filmmakers and students, the National Board of Review viewed over 265 films in 2017 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 2017 Awards Gala gala took place on January 9, 2018 at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.
“The Post is a beautifully crafted film that deeply resonates at this moment in time,” said NBR President Annie Schulhof. “We are so thrilled to award it our Best Film as well as to honor the wonderfully talented Greta Gerwig as our Best Director.”See The Winners
