Top Gun: Maverick was named Best Picture by the National Board of Review

On Thursday, the organization announced that “Top Gun: Maverick” had been named Best Picture by the National Board of Review.

Among the big acting winners was Colin Farrell, who took home the Best Actor award for “The Banshees of Inisherin'” after exiting the New York Film Critics Circle earlier this month. Two NBR winners in the last 12 years have translated into Oscar winners – Casey Affleck for “Manchester by the Sea” (2016) and Will Smith for “King Richard” (2021). As for the eventual winners who became nominees, only three men were snubbed by the Academy in the end — Oscar Isaac for “A Most Violent Year” (2014), Tom Hanks for “The Post” (2017) and Adam Sandler for Uncut. Gems (2019).

Michelle Yeoh got a big boost to her day after being announced as Madame Morehy in the upcoming ‘Wicked’ movies and featured in miscellaneous Actors episode on actors today. Now she can add the NBR Best Actress winner to her golden day for her role as laundromat owner Evelyn in Everything Everywhere at Once. Her award campaigns can look to Brie Larson in “Room” (2015) and Renée Zellweger in “Judy” (2019) as the previous statuette winners. As for the nominees, four have lost mention of their Oscars in the past 10 years – Leslie Manville for “One More Year” (2010), Tilda Swinton for “We Need to Talk About Kevin” (2011), Emma Thompson for “Saving Mr. Banks” (2013) and last year’s Rachel Ziegler for West Side Story.

Supporting races went to co-star Brendan Gleeson of “The Banshees of Inisherin,” while artist-turned-actress Janelle Monáe took home her first major award for the “Knives Out” sequel, “Glass Onion.” . The crossover between the NBR and the Academy Awards in acting races has been spotty with two or three Oscar nods by the end of the season.

Steven Spielberg took home the Best Director award for The Fabelmans, earning his second career NBR win after Empire of the Sun (1987). The two-time Academy Award winner will likely miss another Academy nod in January. However, it is notable that only six of the last 12 (50%) NBR winners have been nominated for an Academy Award. It is also notable that none of them won an Academy Award. The last NBR winner was translated into Oscar winner Martin Scorsese for “The Departed” (2006).

Some of the notable omissions from the wins and top 10 mentions included two musician-focused films — Todd Field’s “Tar” with Cate Blanchett and Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis” with Austin Butler. There was also no love for Marvel Studios films, including “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” by Ryan Coogler, nor for directors and Hollywood legends like Darren Aronofsky (“The Whale”), Sam Mendes (“Empire of Light”) and Ron Howard ( “Thirteen Lives”).

Over the past 30 years, the Best Picture winner has earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture, except once per decade—2014’s “A Most Violent Year,” 2000’s “Quills,” and 1998’s “Gods and Monsters.” In the 1980s, there were two technical errors in 1987’s “Empire of the Sun” and 1983’s “Betrayal”, which were linked to “Terms of Endearment”.

NBR’s most recent movie selections have been Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” Peter Farley’s “Green Book,” and George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road.” Last year, Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods” won the top prize but was only able to muster a single Oscar nomination for the original score (Terrence Blanchard), so the jury is still out if this one will represent the next decade.
