At The National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Awards Gala at Cipriani in New York City on Tuesday, The Word asked some of our favorite celebrities what they loved watching this year. And, to our delight, they were so humble — or such good actors — they didn't mention their own films. Oh, and how cute is Mark Wahlberg for digging “Tangled”? We always knew he was a secret Mandy Moore fan.
“I’m probably biased, but ‘True Grit’ was pretty great.” –Ben Affleck
Writer and director Sebastian Junger (who won a Best Directorial Debut award for “Restrepo”): “I thought ‘Get Low’ was tremendous. Robert Duvall is such an amazing actor. And ‘127 Hours’ was pretty amazing.”
Aaron Sorkin: “‘The King’s Speech.’ I’m an absolute nut for it. I would have given anything if I had written it, but I wouldn’t have written it as well as David Seidler.”
David O. Russell (director of “The Fighter”): “I love so many films, all for different reasons. I loved ‘The Kids Are All Right.’ I watched it a bunch of times. I have a 16-year-old who pushed me away. So to me, that is what the story is about if you’re gay or straight.”
Mark Wahlberg: “‘Tangled.’ I love it. I saw it with my daughter. It’s a father-and-daughter story, basically.”
