Board of Review votes 'Iwo Jima' best picture

3 January 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Fact-based fiction ruled this year's National Board of Review selections as Clint Eastwood's Japan-centric World War II drama Letters From Iwo Jima took home best film of the year honors.

Forest Whitaker nabbed best actor for his role as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in The Last King of Scotland, and Helen Mirren ruled as best actress for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen.

Pedro Almodovar's Volver was named best foreign film, Davis Guggenheim's An Inconvenient Truth earned best documentary, John Lasseter and Joe Ranft's Cars won best animated film, and Martin Scorsese was named best director for The Departed, which topped the list of winners with three awards, including a place on the top 10 best film list and a best ensemble cast award.

The NBR's top 10 films, led by Iwo Jima, are Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Babel, Edward Zwick's Blood Diamond, Departed, David Frankel's The Devil Wears Prada, Eastwood's Iwo Jima companion film Flags of Our Fathers, Nicholas Hytner's The History Boys, Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris' Little Miss Sunshine, Richard Eyre's Notes on a Scandal and John Curran's The Painted Veil.

Two much-discussed Oscar contenders, Dreamgirls and Queen, were overlooked on the top 10 list by a group that has been mired in controversy in recent years over the qualifications of its voters, who allegedly have given awards out to appease various studios.

This year, four of the top 10 films are from Warner Bros. Pictures, and one is from subsidiary Warner Independent Pictures, while three are from Fox Searchlight and one is from its sister studio, 20th Century Fox. »
