National Board of Review: Chock Full of Celebrities!

When you do what I do, hit up events and TV shows to meet celebrities, it’s a rare occasion you hit the same events every year. The are a few specific things like the Tribeca Film Festival, spring and fall Fashion Weeks, and even what we like to call “TV Week” in May that hosts all the network upfronts. However there is one event that my friend June and I have made our own tradition out of for three years now, and that’s the National Board of Review Awards which are held every January at Cipriani on 42nd Street. I consider the National Board of Review like our own little east coast Golden Globes/Oscar hybrid, which, if you take a look at some of the winners for this year, you’ll see why:

There are always big names at the NBR Awards and even if you don’t get the chance to meet any of them during the event, it’s still pretty cool to be able to watch all of these big names and talent arrive and mingle outside on smoke breaks, and see all the gorgeous dresses, etc. In the slideshow are some pictures of Alec Baldwin, Carey Mulligan, Emma Stone, George Clooney, Helen Mirren, Jeremy Irons, Jessica Chastain, Keira Knightley, Michael Fassbender, Rooney Mara, Seth Rogen, Shailene Woodley, Stacy Keibler, Tilda Swinton, and Viola Davis.
