Gold Rush Gang: National Board of Review Preview and Predictions

nbrlogo

 

The Gold Rush Gang has chosen their picks to win at the National Board of Review tomorrow. We all know about the affinity of the NBR for all things Warner Brothers, George Clooney and Clint Eastwood but how far will that love go? Every GRG member is picking Gravity to take the big win plus a handful of WB films populating the top 10. Will they break from tradition this year? Will they be in Harvey’s pocket or actually make some brave choices this year. Jump over to the forums and make your vote count in our Gold Rush Contest!
