December 31 is just a few weeks away, and you know what that means — ’tis the season for year-end lists and awards.

The National Board of Review of Motion Pictures, traditionally the first group to announce its favorites, made its list of 2007 winners public yesterday. The Board’s pick for best film? No Country for Old Men.

The Coen Brothers’ latest, starring Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, and Josh Brolin, currently boasts an impressive 96 percent Tomatometer rating.

The Board’s best-director nod went to Tim Burton, for his work on this month’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Advance reviews for the film, opening in wide release on December 21, have been uniformly positive — Sweeney Todd currently sits at 100 percent on the Tomatometer.

Best actor? George Clooney, for his role in Michael Clayton (90 percent on the Tomatometer); on the distaff side, the Board agreed with Away From Her‘s 95 percent Tomatometer rating, giving Julie Christie the best actress award.

Among supporting actors, Casey Affleck (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, 75 percent) and Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone, 93 percent) led the pack.

Rounding out the major awards were nods for Diablo Cody (Juno, 92 percent) and Nancy Oliver (Lars and the Real Girl, 78 percent) who tied in the screenwriting category.
