Tracy Pollan and Michael J. Fox polished up for the National Board of Review Awards Gala.

For the NYC event, the Back to the Future lead, 62, dressed up in dark suit, light blue shirt, a black tie that featured tiny white polka dots and black sneakers. Pollan, 63, stunned in a long-sleeved partially sheer black top, black pants and matching open-toed shoes.

At the show, Fox took home a win in the Best Documentary category for Still, which detailed his decades-long battle with Parkinson's disease.

The actress is heavily featured in Still, and when Fox was previously asked why that was, he replied, "It’s my story. You can’t tell my story without her."

Over the last year, the father-of-four has been candid about his health struggles and how it also affects his family — though he insisted their bond has never wavered.

"I love Tracy obviously and she's an amazing person and has gone through a lot. I realize she has a life separate from me having Parkinson's, from me being Alex Keaton or Marty McFly, she's a person," he explained in a 2023 interview. "I think that's why it's gone OK."

"She had indicated to me by saying in for better or for worse, in sickness and in health," the movie star noted of how the blonde beauty reacted when he informed her of his diagnosis in 1991.

"She was able to get me through it, and go through it with me. And she has for 35 years. We knew the bus was coming and we knew it was going to hit, but we didn't know how far away it was or how fast it was going," he explained. "At any time, she would have been forgiven to say, 'I'm just gonna step out.' But she didn't do that."

Pollan also shared an old picture, writing alongside it, "35 years!!! Happy anniversary my love. Here’s to many more glorious adventures together. I could not love you more💗."
