The National Board of Review's annual Awards Gala will be hosted by Emmy-winning NBC correspondent Meredith Vieira for the third time. The gala will take place on January 8 in New York City, following a December 5 announcement of the winners--which follows the New York Film Critics Circle voting on December 3.

NBR president Annie Schulhof says, “We are thrilled to have someone of Meredith’s caliber returning to host our Awards Gala for a third time. She was a tremendous addition as host of our 2010 and 2011 Galas and we look forward to working with her again this year.”

Last year, the NBR awarded "Hugo" Best Film (which went on to earn five Oscars) and Best Director to Martin Scorsese; George Clooney won Best Actor for "The Descendants" and Tilda Swinton won for "We Need to Talk About Kevin." Here's more on the 2011 winners.
