Mad Max: Fury Road Wins Big at Critics Choice Awards, Spotlight Best Picture
Mad Max is buzzing in the early part of 2016, taking home nine prizes at yesterdays Critics Choice Awards, including Best Director for George Miller.
While fans of the awards season may have been a little weary of the fact that Star Wars: The Force Awakens was added to the list of Best Picture nominees (the addition coming after voting had closed), it was undue concern. The sci-fi blockbuster fell short of the big prize.
Instead, Spotlight took home Best Picture of 2015, while Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larson won Best Actor and Actress, respectively, for The Revenant and Room. Sylvester Stallone and Alicia Vikander took home the supporting roles in their respective categories.
For Best Original Screenplay, Spotlight won out, while Best Adapted Screenplay went to The Big Short. Emmanuel Lubezki won Best Cinematography for The Revenant.
For TV, Fargo won four awards but Mr. Robot won Best Drama Series.
