National Board of Review have unveiled their 2018 winners and the results are… about as middle of the road as one can get. Picking up Best Film was Green Book, while Viggo Mortensen also nabbed Best Actor. A Star is Born was also a big winner, earning Best Director for Bradley Cooper, Best Actress for Lady Gaga, and Best Supporting Actor for Sam Elliott. Elsewhere, If Beale Street Could Talk and First Reformed earned honors, while The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Roma, and Can You Ever Forgive Me? were among more of the best films of the year picks.

Far less embarrassing were last night’s winners for the Gotham Awards, topped by The Rider, which we’ve also included below.
