National Board of Review Awards 2012.


                      The Winners for this year's National Board of Review Awards were announced just a few minutes ago. Zero Dark Thirty once again won Best Picture and Director for Kathryn Bigelow after New York Film Critics Circle did the same 2 days back. Now this makes Zero Dark Thirty the frontrunner for Best Picture Oscar alongside Lincoln and Argo. Ann Dowd won Supporting Actress for Compliance which should easily put her on the map for he stunning performance, i have still to see the movie. Other notable surprised were Bradley Cooper winning for Lead Actor and Rian Johnson win for Original Screenplay (Looper). Looper should be considered for that award by the Academy as well in my opinion.
