National Board of Review Loves Clint's Letters
Speaking of the awards season... Clint Eastwood's Letters from Iwo Jima, the companion film to this fall's earlier-released Flags of our Fathers, has been named best picture by the National Board of Review. Martin Scorsese was named best director for The Departed, while Forest Whitaker (Last King of Scotland) and Helen Mirren (The Queen) nabbed the top acting prizes. Volver won best foreign film, Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth was declared top documentary, and Cars led the animated-entries pack.
