The National Board of Review of Motion Pictures announced today that NBC News’ Today news anchor Natalie Morales has been tapped to host the annual National Board of Review Awards Gala, taking place on January 10th at NYC’s Cipriani 42nd Street. This year’s winners will be announced on December 1 so that voting members have the opportunity to see as many films as possible. To determine the NBR’s annual awards, ballots are sent in by the 110 members - film enthusiasts, academics, filmmakers, and students in the New York metropolitan area – and subsequently tabulated by a certified public accountancy firm in order to decide the winners. An Awards Jury helps set the special achievement awards presented at the gala.
