Mad Max: Fury Road Leads 2016 Critics Choice Nominees


After making $375.8 million worldwide, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” has become an unlikely frontrunner on the awards circuit, earning two Golden Globe nominations and being named the best movie of 2015 by the National Board of Review. On Monday, Dec. 14, it was announced that the film led all nominees with 13 nods for the Critics Choice Awards. Miler’s film was honored in categories such as Best Picture, Best Director and Best Sci-Fi Horror Movie, while thespians Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy were honored with nominations for Best Actress in an Action Movie and Best Actor in an Action Movie, respectively. However, could this populist choice stand a chance against films like “Carol,” “The Martian” or “The Revenant” (nominated with 9 Critics Choice Awards), and “Spotlight” (nominated with 9 Critics Choice Awards) when the Oscars nominations are announced in January? We hope so.

Empire claims that their awards recognise those snubbed by other ceremonies, thanks to voting being open to the public. Mad Max: Fury Road came out on top with ten nominations closely followed by Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens with nine.
