National Board Of Review: They Make the Globes Seem Professional

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is often -- and rightly -- mocked as a bit of a scam when it comes to awards. But the National Board of Review might be even worse. I had no idea it was such a charlatan, but Roger Friedman of FoxNews lists their latest travails and mentions that the NBR is just a bunch of people who pay $600 a year so they can screen movies and meet the stars at Q&As. Who knew?

There can only be one NBR and that's the Nightly Business Report on PBS at 6:30pm weeknights.

maybe that's so, but I love the NBR's just because they're such an early precursor.
