The National Board of Review has announced its annual slate of awards honorees, and leading the pack is "The Post."

The film, the latest star-studded historical drama from Steven Spielberg, received NBR's top honor for 2017, with the organization naming it the best film of the year. "The Post" also received accolades for its Hollywood heavyweight stars, Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, who took home NBR's best actor and best actress trophies for their roles as Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and publisher Katharine Graham, respectively.

As is customary for NBR, the organization also released a list of its top 10 runner-up flicks of the year, which often includes a more eclectic (read: more audience-friendly) lineup than other award groups. That slate featured the latest excellent, pop culture-friendly flick from Edgar Wright; the headline-making horror satire from Jordan Peele (who also took home best directorial debut), and the record-breaking debut of director Greta Gerwig (who nabbed best director).

Here's the NBR top 10, in alphabetical order, for 2017:

Baby Driver
Call Me By Your Name
The Disaster Artist
Downsizing
Dunkirk
The Florida Project
Get Out
Lady Bird
Logan
