Now the National Board of Review has spoken!

NBR is the first big awards-thingy that usually gives a good idea of how the rest of the awards season will shape up. But it doesn't necessarily reflect what the Oscars will think. Gotta love Rian Johnson winning for Best Original Screenplay though. Sucks that The Master hasn't been getting much love so far.
