Leadership at the National Board Of Review announced the date of their awards gala on Monday [22].

“There are so many exciting films being released this year by both established and up-and-coming filmmakers,” said NBR president Annie Schulhof.

“From the biggest blockbuster to the most intimate independent film, we can’t wait to watch these diverse stories unfold and to share and celebrate these experiences together during our awards gala at Cipriani.”

Last season the NBR voted Zero Dark Thirty [pictured] best film of 2012.
