The National Board of Review Names 2017 Honorees

The National Board of Review today announced their 2017 honorees, with top honors including THE POST as Best Film of the Year, Greta Gerwig as Best Director of the Year for LADY BIRD, Tom Hanks as Best Actor of the Year for his performance in THE POST and Meryl Streep as Best Actress of the Year for her performance in THE POST.

NBR President Annie Schulhof said, "THE POST is a beautifully crafted film that deeply resonates at this moment in time. We are so thrilled to award it our best film as well as to honor the wonderfully talented Greta Gerwig as our Best Director."

These awards are the latest citation of excellence by the National Board of Review, a tradition going back 108 years. This year 265 films were viewed by this select group of film enthusiasts, filmmakers, professionals, academics, students, many of which were followed by in-depth discussions with directors, actors, producers, and screenwriters. Voting ballots were tabulated by the accounting firm of Lutz & Carr, LLP.

The National Board of Review's awards celebrate excellence in filmmaking with categories that include Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Actress, Best Original and Adapted Screenplay, Breakthrough Performance, and Directorial Debut, as well as signature honors such as the Freedom of Expression and the NBR Spotlight Award.

The honorees will be feted at the National Board of Review Awards Gala, hosted by Willie Geist, on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at Cipriani 42nd Street. To request credentials to the evening's red carpet, please fill out the application here by December 31, 2017.
