Streep wins National Board of Review award for Best Actress

Just a few minutes after I posted about the first social media sentiments for The Post and how favorable they were for Meryl, the National Board of Review announced their selections for best films and performances. In addition to The Post being awarded the top prize, its two lead stars, Meryl and Tom Hanks were both recognized with Best Actress and Actor awards, respectively.

If memory serves, this is the first time Meryl has received this award since her legendary turn in 1982's Sophie's Choice. As the first major precursor award of the season, these NBR results add to the already strong buzz that is building for both The Post and Meryl's apparently brilliant performance. Keep 'em comin'.
