NBR Awards named Licorice Pizza Best Film of 2021

NEW YORK (AP) – Licorice Pizza by Paul Thomas Anderson has been named Best Film of the Year by the National Oversight Board.

Anderson also received an award for Best Director, and film stars Alana Haim and Cooper Hoffman were selected for their breakthrough roles in a comedy about growing up. The National Review Board is an organization made up of film enthusiasts, academics and film professionals, founded in 1909.

Both Will Smith (Best Actor) and Onganyu Ellis (Best Supporting Actress) won for their roles in Richard Williams’ drama King Richard. Rookie Rachel Zegler was named Best Actress for her role in Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story.

Other picks included Kiaran Hinds as Best Supporting Actor for Belfast; Asghar Farhadi for the script for the play “Hero”; and Joel Cohen’s Best Adapted Screenplay for The Tragedy of Macbeth, which was also selected for the cinematography of Bruno Delbonnel.

Disney’s Encanto won Best Animated Feature; “Hero” became the best film in a foreign language; Questlove’s Summer of the Soul (… or When the Revolution Couldn’t Be televised) won Best Director Awards; and “The Harder They Fall” by James Samuel – Best Ensemble. Freedom of expression will go to the animated documentary about refugees “Run.”

The awards will be presented at a gala dinner on January 11, hosted by Willie Geist. Last year, the National Review Board selected Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods as Best Film of 2020.
