National Board Of Review Awards 2011

           Well here comes one of the most earliest Shock or Surprise in the 2011 Awards Season, Hugo and Martin Scorsese won Best Picture and Director. Wow, that is something i didn't saw coming at all, it definitely is one of the best reviewed movies of the year but i wasn't sure it would win or be a major contender. George Clooney and Shailene Woodley won, Tilda Swinton is back in the race while it makes me happy that Christopher Plummer won which hopefully is one of the many coming ones.
