Stars Turn Out For National Board Of Review Awards

Hollywood stars GEORGE CLOONEY, BEN AFFLECK and wife JENNIFER GARNER were among the stars in attendance at America's coveted National Board Of Review of Motion Picture awards on Tuesday night (15Jan08), despite the ongoing writers strike. The winners, including the Coen brothers' No Country For Old Men for Best Film, were announced in early December (07), but the official awards gala was held in New York on Tuesday. And the show escaped the fate of the Golden Globes and People's Choice Awards, which had to be cancelled after the Writers Guild of America (WGA) members threatened to picket the event. Clooney was on hand to pick up his prize for Best Actor for Michael Clayton, while Affleck collected his gong for Best Directorial Debut for Gone, Baby, Gone. It was a family affair for the Affleck clan - in addition to Garner's presence, Ben's younger brother Casey also attended the prizegiving, where he received the Best Supporting Actor award for The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford. Young stars Ellen Page and Emile Hirsch also took advantage of the awards show, which is likely to be one of the few ceremonies this year (08) to be unaffected by the WGA strike. They were both honoured with wins in the Breakthrough Performance categories - Page for Juno and Hirsch for Into The Wild. The National Board Of Review honours are traditionally considered the first major indication of who will lead at the Academy Awards.
