National Board of Review Winners

Well the Social Network is off to a great start, with a big win from NBR, especially for Jesse Eisenberg, who needs some critics awards to get into the actor's race. The big win is for Jacki Weaver, who is mostly unknown to American audiences, but could easily get into the Supporting Actress race, since the competition is so weak this year. Also nice boosts for The Town, Another Year, and Shutter Island, who were falling off the radar. Overall, a nice start to the awards season.
