"The National Board of Review, widely considered a harbinger of the Academy Awards, has chosen 'The Social Network' as the best film of the year," says the Associated Press. And I'm very proud to say that they also chose Chris Sparling's script for Buried as Best Original Screenplay.
"One of the group's most surprising choices was picking Chris Sparling's 'Buried' script for best original screenplay. The film, an exercise in minimalism, stars Ryan Reynolds as a contract worker in Iraq taken hostage and buried alive in a coffin — the cramped setting of the entire movie."
Yay Chris! As always, I'm so proud of you. :)
