National Board of Review Awards
Anne Hathaway and Amy Adams
After having a Hollywood moment at the Golden Globes, stars from the hottest films of the year headed East for the annual National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Awards gala, held at New York City's Cipriani restaurant. "It was a genuine joy [to work on the film]," said Anne Hathaway (in Chanel), who was singled out as Best Actress for her role in Rachel Getting Married. "I loved every second." Among the other winners at the event, presented by luxury jeweler Bulgari, was Amy Adams (in Bulgari jewels), who joined the cast of Doubt to pick up the Best Ensemble Award.

After turning heads on the black carpet, Salma Hayek (in Yves Saint Laurent) stepped up to the stage to accept the award for Best Supporting Actress on behalf of Vicky Cristina Barcelona star Penelope Cruz. "I wish she had given me notes or told me what to say," Hayek told the crowd. Since she had no prepared speech, the actress instead thanked the movie's craft services crew "because all the food in Spain is so good."
Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts
Still beaming from the arrival of their second son, Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts enjoyed a grown ups-only night out at the event, hosted by The View's Whoopi Goldberg. In addition to the awards, the night was also a celebration of National Board of Review's 100th anniversary.
Diane Lane and Josh Brolin
"I had a ball here last year," said Milk star Josh Brolin, who returned to this year's ceremony to pick up the award for Best Supporting Actor. Brolin brought along wife Diane Lane (in Bulgari jewels) to help him celebrate his win.
"I imagine when the red carpet rolls up and I wash off my makeup, I’ll go back to being an actor," said Doubt star Viola Davis, who received the award for Breakthrough Performance by an Actress.
"I should be in school right now," said a dazed Dev Patel before accepting the award for Breakthrough Performance by an Actor for his work in Slumdog Millionaire. The movie also took home the top prizes for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Film.
