Top Gun: Maverick Wins Best Picture at National Board of Review

The National Board of Review, an organization made up of film scholars, professionals and enthusiasts, nominated Top Gun: Maverick the best picture of the year, a big signal of the Tom cruise the sequel’s strength as an Oscar contender on the back of its record-breaking box office gross and strong reviews. NBR has long been one of the earliest year-end awards groups to announce their winners Mad Max: Fury Road and Green Book (the later Oscar winner) the best picture of the year. Does that mean loner, widely credited with saving cinemas this summer, has what it takes to go all the way? That hardly says enough for a firm answer, but it’s a powerful reminder not to count it.

Top Gun: Maverick is an exciting crowd pleaser, expertly crafted on every level,” NBR President Annie Schulhof said in a statement. “Tom Cruise, Josef Kosinski, and the entire filmmaking team succeeded in making an incredibly popular film that brought audiences back to theaters while still being a full cinematic achievement.”

Rare is the NBR winner who doesn’t earn at least one Best Picture nomination. (Last year’s champion, Liquorice Pizzanetted Oscar nods for Paul Thomas Anderson in picture, direction and script.) And the news is usually good, if hardly assured, for the actors, who the group also acknowledges. That’s hard to deny Colin Farell is becoming a real force in the Best Actor race, winning here after winning the NYFCC award last week as representing an overall more recognized contender The Banshees by Inisherin than its competitors Brendan Fraser (The whale) and Austin Butler (elvis). banshees‘ Screenwriter Martin McDonagh also won the NBR Original Screenplay Award after winning the NYFCC screenplay; He’s the Oscar frontrunner at this stage. (A bit upset, the adapted script went to international competitor Netflix nothing new in the West.)

This made up for the hard-fought race for best actress Michelle Yeoh win for Everything everywhere at oncewhile Cate Blanchett and tar completely hidden. (Another challenger, Gotham winner Danielle Deadwyler, won a Breakthrough Performance Award and until also among the organization’s 10 best films of the year.) In the subcategories banshees scored one more win Brendan Gleeson pick up the actor award while Janelle Monae, who has been all along the campaign trail for Netflix as the standout of glass onionShe gets a crucial supporting actor pickup as she seeks traction in a chaotic, crowded race. Netflix has landed another big win in the documentary that went to Robert Downey Jr.‘s innovative portrait of his father, sir

The top 10 films recognized the above actor films in addition to the constant contenders women speakwhich also won best ensemble, and The Fabelmansfor what Steven Spielberg won Best Director; Gabriel Labelle was also cited for breakthrough performance. The NBR also made room in its top 10 for Outstanding Indie After sunwhich continues to push the A24 after gaining widespread acclaim, and the Indian epic RRR, who is proving to be a real game-changer despite the country not selecting him for its international Feature Academy submission. This is also worth mentioning Avatar: The Way of Water made his way into the field, despite the JamesCameron Sequel officially kicked off on screen just a few days ago.

As for films this group didn’t aim for: Beyond tarincluding absences elvis, Babylon, she saidand The whale. Don’t worry too much, though: there’s still plenty of awards season to come.
