The journey to the Oscars has begun, with the first award for Best Film of the Year going to “Green Book.” The AP reports that the National Board of Review picked the drama along with its star Viggo Mortensen, who was named Best Actor.

The movie had already been considered an Oscars front-runner after claiming the audience award at the Toronto International Film Festival.

“A Star Is Born” also received plenty of recognition, including winning best director for Bradley Cooper, best actress for Lady Gaga and best supporting actor for Sam Elliott.

Barry Jenkins’ James Baldwin adaptation “If Beale Street Could Talk” won for Jenkins’ screenplay and for Regina King’s supporting performance, the AP notes. The awards will be presented Jan. 8 in New York.
