National Board of Review celebrates

Starry evening all about 'Slumdog Millionaire'

NEW YORK — With its glitzy kudos confab at Gotham’s Cipriani Jan. 14, The National Board of Review entered its 100th year. And while the non-profit’s honors were divided among 13 pics, the evening was really all about “Slumdog Millionaire.”

In addition to snagging film, adapted screenplay, and breakthrough performance (for Dev Patel) prizes, the Danny Boyle-helmed feature received shout-outs from a preponderance of those who took the stage (including presenters Alec Baldwin, Meredith Vieira, Julian Schnabel, and emcee Whoopi Goldberg).

“I felt a bit embarrassed during other people’s moments,” admitted Boyle, who was by turns incredulous and grateful for the love fest. “If I walk under a bus tomorrow, I’ll die happy, believe me.”
