The National Board of Review on Tuesday revealed its 2018 award winners, naming Green Book as its pick for best film.
In addition to Green Book receiving the top honor, Viggo Mortensen, the star of the Universal release, was named best actor.
The NBR plaudits mark the first major awards and nominations for the Peter Farrelly-directed pic, which was inspired by the true friendship that developed between Italian-American driver Tony Vallelonga (Mortensen) and African-American musician Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) on a road trip through the deep South during the 1960s.
