NEW YORK — Composer Elmer Bernstein was presented the Career Achievement award by Eli Wallach when the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures held its annual gala January 14th, 2003 at Manhattan’s Tavern on the Green.

Bernstein has scored more than 150 films, racking up 13 Oscar nominations and winning in 1967 for “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” The composer’s “Far From Heaven” is in release through Focus Features.

New York-based NBR includes educators, screenwriters, historians and film students and has presented awards since 1929. The organization’s annual honors are seen as kicking off the film world’s frenzied winter awards season, leading up to the Oscars.
