The upcoming “Invictus” movie has already won awards.
The New York-based National Board of Review (NBR) gave Clint Eastwood the award for best director, Morgan Freeman the best actor award and the movie also grabbed one the Freedom of Expression Award’s.
“Voted by the 108-member organization, composed of film enthusiasts and academics, the NBR Awards are an imprecise indicator of eventual Oscar-worthiness. During the past decade, three of the NBR’s choices, including last year’s “Slumdog Millionaire,” captured the best picture Oscars.” [Hollywoodreporter]
Sign of things to come hey.
I’ve said this before and ill say it again. Anything that has South Africa, Madiba and rugby in it is bound to crack the nod..take the other Oscar winner about SA and rugby for example: Heel against the Head ( who can forget Mal Oom….there it is) ..which is the most hired movie ever in the history of video in this country.
