Martin Scorsese’s highly anticipated film “Killers of the Flower Moon” has taken the film industry by storm as it dominates the National Board of Review’s 2023 winners list. The prestigious organization has recognized the film with three major awards: Best Film, Best Director, and Best Actress.
Scorsese’s masterpiece, set in the 1920s, has captivated audiences with its stunning visuals and compelling storyline. It tells the true story of the Osage Nation murders and the FBI’s investigation into the mysterious killings. The film’s leading lady, whose performance has garnered widespread praise, takes home the Best Actress award.
But Scorsese is not the only one receiving accolades for his work on “Killers of the Flower Moon.” Lily Gladstone, who portrays a pivotal character in the period piece, is also recognized for her outstanding performance.
In addition to the film’s success, the National Board of Review has acknowledged other talented individuals in the industry. Paul Giamatti’s exceptional portrayal in “The Holdovers” earns him the Best Actor award, while Da’Vine Joy Randolph is recognized as the Best Supporting Actress.
Mark Ruffalo, known for his versatility as an actor, claims the Best Supporting Actor award for his role in “Poor Things.” Ruffalo’s ability to bring his characters to life on the big screen never fails to impress.
Bradley Cooper, a true force in the industry, is honored with the NBR Icon Award. His remarkable achievements as an actor, writer, producer, and director have solidified his status as a Hollywood legend.
The NBR, an esteemed organization that has been celebrating excellence in filmmaking for over 100 years, also presents awards in other categories such as Best Original and Adapted Screenplay, as well as Breakthrough Performance. These categories serve as a testament to the incredible talent emerging within the industry.
This year, the NBR introduces a new award category, Outstanding Achievement in Stunt Artistry. This highlights the often overlooked but crucial aspect of filmmaking, recognizing the talented individuals who bring thrilling action sequences to life.
While the NBR Best Film winners often become crowd favorites, it is important to note that they rarely secure the coveted Best Picture Academy Award. However, the organization’s distinguished awards ceremony, set to take place on January 11 in New York City, is expected to be a star-studded event. Renowned television host Willie Geist will be taking on the role of hosting duties for the glamorous gala.
As the anticipation builds for the upcoming NBR Awards Gala, film enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the announcement of other acclaimed films and individuals who will be recognized for their extraordinary contributions to the ever-evolving world of cinema.
