‘Her’ Named Film Of The Year By National Board Of Review

When the Toronto Film Festival wrapped in September, it was generally assumed that 12 Years A Slave would sweep all of the pre-Oscar awards. But if the events of this week are any indication, it looks like that prediction may be horribly off the mark.

Yesterday, American Hustle pulled off a major upset by snagging the New York Film Critics Circle film of the year award, and today Her pulled off an equally major upset by snagging the film of the year award from the National Board of Review.

Her filmmaker Spike Jonze was also declared by the NBR to be director of the year, while the acting awards went to Nebraska“s Bruce Dern and Saving Mrs. Banks” Emma Thompson.
