National Board of Review Announces 2018 Honorees
Today, the National Board of Review named their 2018 honorees. The top awards have gone to Green Book as Best Film of the Year, Bradley Cooper as Best Director of the Year for A Star is Born, Viggo Mortensen as Best Actor of the Year for his performance in Green Book, and Lady Gaga as Best Actress of the Year for her performance in A Star is Born.

"We are proud to honor Green Book as our best film - it is a warm and heartfelt look at a remarkable friendship, brought to the screen at a moment where its story of love, compassion, and shared humanity deeply resonates.  We are also thrilled to award Bradley Cooper as our best director - he is an extraordinary talent behind the camera, bringing a fresh and modern perspective, as well as superb craftsmanship and tremendous heart, to the classic story of A Star is Born", said National Board of Review President Annie Schulhof.
