The National Board of Review named "Zero Dark Thirty" Best Picture while its helmer Kathryn Bigelow  won her second Best Director prize from this New York based awards group. These wins come two days after the docudrama about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden won both these prizes from the New York Film Critics Circle.  Three years ago, Bigelow won Best Director from the Nbr for "The Hurt Locker" but the film lost Best Picture to "Up in the Air." Both Bigelow and her movie went on to win at the Oscars.  Bradley Cooper pulled off an upset in Best Actor, winning for "Silver Linings Playbook." All the buzz this season has focused on his co-star Jennifer Lawrence who lost Best Actress to "Zero Dark Thirty" star Jessica Chastain. Both these women had been bested at the Nyfcc by Rachel Weisz ("The Deep Blue Sea").  Related: What do the Nbr »
