The National Board of Review (NBR) has announced its picks for the best films of 2018. An organization made up of film enthusiasts, industry professionals, academics, and filmmakers, the NBR’s is one of the first winners lists announced in 2018, quickly following Monday night’s Gotham Awards. Breaking from The Gothams’ and The Independent Spirit Awards’ smaller film focus, the National Board Review voting body favored studio awards features, with A Star is Born and Green Book sweeping the top categories – the latter was voted the Best Film of 2018. Last year, The Post swept the top awards categories but was shut out come Oscar night. Additionally, big winners The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri were omitted entirely from the NBR picks, so exercise caution in placing too much stock in today’s list for Oscar indictions. The full list of winners are below.
