The National Board of Review on Tuesday announced the winners of their annual awards, honouring the best in cinema in 2017. Steven Spielberg’s secret project, The Post, starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep was named Best Picture, and its leads also took Best Actor and Best Actress awards.

Several popular films made it to NBR’s list of the top ten films of the year. Notable examples are the bleak superhero film Logan, which marked Hugh Jackman’s final bow as Wolverine, Christopher Nolan’s World War II drama Dunkirk, and Edgar Wright’s action movie, Baby Driver.

Debutante Greta Gerwig won Best Director for her universally acclaimed drama, Lady Bird, while Jordan Peele’s horror film Get Out continued its dominant awards season run, earning a spot on the top ten, and awards for Best Directorial Debut and Best Ensemble.

The 2016 Best Picture winner according to NBR was Manchester by the Sea. As far as Oscar predictions go, NBR’s picks rarely correspond with the Academy’s. The last time the two agreed on Best Picture was 2008 (Slumdog Millionaire) and the last time they agreed on Best Director was 2005 (Martin Scorsese, The Departed).

NBR was founded in 1909, and is made up of members that include “film enthusiasts, filmmakers, professionals, and academics of varying ages.”
