Kathryn Bigelow's film about hunt for Bin Laden gathers Oscar momentum with second major honour of the week
Kathryn Bigelow's Osama bin Laden movie Zero Dark Thirty has won its second major honour in a week, as the National Board of Review anointed it the best film of 2012. Bigelow was also handed the Nbr's best director award, and Jessica Chastain, who plays chief Osama-hunter Maya, was named best actress.
This follows Zero Dark Thirty's triumph at the New York Film Critics Circle awards, where it won best film, best director and best cinematography.
David O Russell's Silver Linings Playbook took two Nbr awards: best actor for Bradley Cooper and best adapted screenplay for Russell himself. Beasts of the Southern Wild also carried off two: breakthrough actress for nine-year-old lead Quvenzhané Wallis and best directorial debut for Benh Zeitlin. Michael Haneke's Cannes Palme d'Or 2012 winner, Amour, took home best foreign language film. »
