Chiwetel Ejiofor and Steve McQueen discuss "12 Years a Slave" at a National Board of Review Q&A

The National Board of Review announced today that they will unveil their award winners on Wednesday, December 4. 

For the past century, the NBR has dedicated its efforts to the support of domestic and foreign films. Each year, its members view over 250 films. In 2012, the NBR selected Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" as its Best Picture winner.

So which films might emerge victorious this year? Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave," which recently took the TIFF audience award, also won Indiewire's Criticwire TIFF poll, along with Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity." (Check out our TIFF roundup here, where we pick which films came out at the top of the heap following the sprawling fest).

The NBR's annual awards gala will be held on January 7, 2014, in New York. Check out their website redesign and new logo here.

    I've attended a lot NBR screenings and I'm not even a member. I'm not even sure how many members attend. It seems to be just students. The guy that moderated 12 Years a Slave is the most boring moderator.

    Never understood the rush to pick winners this early. Every year there are a couple of films that NOBODY has seen yet that come out after the NBR are already given out.

    Other than bragging rights about being "first" - what is the hurry??????
