Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper wins for 'A Star is Born' From National Board of Review

Billboard | The feel-good road-trip drama Green Book was named the best film of the year, and its star, Viggo Mortensen, best actor, by the National Board of Review in one of the first in a parade of awards season honors.

The NBR awards, announced Tuesday (Nov. 27), gave the Oscar hopes of Universal’s Green Book a jolt. The film, directed by Peter Farrelly (who typically makes broader comedies like There’s Something About Mary with his brother, Bobby) was declared an Oscar favorite after taking the audience award at the Toronto International Film Festival.

But in two weeks of release, it has struggled to latch on at the box office, and some critics have called its portrayal of race relations old-fashioned and criticized it for relying on “white savior” tropes. It stars Mahershala Ali as classical pianist Don Shirley, who tours the Deep South in 1962 with a racist Italian-American driver played by Mortensen.

Bradley Cooper’s lauded remake A Star Is Born also took several top awards, including best director for Cooper, best actress for Lady Gaga and best supporting actor for Sam Elliott. Barry Jenkins’ James Baldwin adaptation If Beale Street Could Talk took prizes for Jenkins’ screenplay and for Regina King’s supporting performance.
