ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: "Her," a story about a man who falls in love with a computer operating system, wins the National Board of Review award for 2013 best film of the year and best director. On Tuesday (January 7) in New York director Spike Jonze and others picked up their acting prizes and special honors. Jonze's "Her," stars Joaquin Phoenix as a withdrawn writer in Los Angeles in the quirky love story. Best adapted screenplay went to Terence Winter for director Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street," a film which has gotten a lot attention for its vulgar depiction of Wall Street greed. In addition to reportedly setting a record for the most use of the F-word in a film. The NBR honored Scorsese and the film's star Leonardo DiCaprio with the spotlight award for their career collaboration. "For me, it's been the most unbelievable educational process anyone, learning experience, anyone can ever have in their lifetime. And I've learned more about, not only, you know, what it is to be an actor but the importance of making films every time I'm with him. So I'm just an honored dude to be able to work with him," said DiCaprio. "I think, you know, we are interested in the same subject matter, the same characters. He's not afraid to go to the more difficult characters, as you can see in "Wolf." He's not afraid to embrace some of the most negative things about the human nature. And that's really good, because it needs a lot of trust. And I think the trust is there, that's what this is about," Scorsese said to reporters. Bruce Dern was named best actor for his portrayal as an ornery old man convinced he has won a fortune in Alexander Payne's "Nebraska." Comedic actor Will Forte, best known for his roles on the U.S. television sketch show "Saturday Night Live," won the best supporting actor prize for playing Dern's patient son in "Nebraska." Emma Thompson picked up the best actress accolade for her turn as author P.L. Travers, the creator of "Mary Poppins," in "Saving Mr. Banks." Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer was named best supporting actress for "Fruitvale Station," about the real-life story of a young black man shot to death by a white transit policeman. "Fruitvale Station" won honors for breakthrough performance for actor Michael B. Jordan and the best directorial debut prize for Ryan Coogler. The National Board of Review awards gala, follows the New York Film Critics Circle prizes, the first film honors leading up to the Oscars. "Nebraska," "American Hustle," "Her" and "12 Years A Slave" picked up some of up the top awards from the two groups setting the stage for the race to the Academy Awards, the movie industry's highest honors, that will be presented on March 2. The NBR gave brothers Joel and Ethan Coen the best original screenplay prize for "Inside Llewyn Davis" about the Greenwich Village folk scene in 1961. Best animated feature was awarded to "The Wind Rises," by Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki. Director Asghar Farhadi's "The Past," about an Iranian man who deserts his French wife and children to return home, grabbed the best foreign language film prize. Adele Exarchopoulos, who starred in the French lesbian love story "Blue is the Warmest Color" by director Abdellatif Kechiche also nabbed a breakthrough performance award. "Stories We Tell," a Canadian film directed by Sarah Polley that delves into storytelling and memories, picked up the best documentary award.
