Up in the Air Scores Big at NBR Awards

George Clooney's new movie Up in the Air hasn't even hit theaters yet and it's already getting Oscar buzz.

Up in the Air just landed the Best Film honors from the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures.

The National Board of Review's film picks have been golden in recent years - the panel's choice for best movie went on to win the Oscar for Best Feature in 2007, 2008 and 2009.

Clooney shared a win for best actor with Invictus star Morgan Freeman, while his co-star Anna Kendrick was named Best Supporting Actress and writer/director Jason Reitman picked up the Best Adapted Screenplay prize. Clint Eastwood was named best director.

So what does George think about all the buzz surrounding his movie? "I had some tremendous Oscar Buzz for Batman and Robin, as you can imagine I was disappointed. So I don’t really pay attention to it [Oscar buzz], George jokingly told Hollyscoop on the red carpet for the Up in the Air Los Angeles premiere.
