'Mad Max: Fury Road' Wins Big at Oscars 2016
Shortly after Mad Max: Fury Road's release in May, many fans started wondering if this blockbuster would have any shot at winning Best Picture at The 88th Annual Academy Awards, which were handed out last night. As it turns out, Mad Max: Fury Road did end up taking home the most Oscars, winning six, but it was largely shut out of the major categories, such as Best Picture and Best Director, for George Miller's work behind the camera. Mad Max: Fury Road was actually one of just three movies that ended up taking home multiple awards last night.

Mad Max: Fury Road's wins were largely in technical categories, taking home Oscars for Best Costume Design (Jenny Bevan), Best Production Design (Colin Gibson; Katie Sharrock, Lisa Thompson), Best Makeup and Hairstyling (Lesley Vanderwalt, Damian Martin, Elka Wardega), Best Film Editing (Margaret Sixel), Best Sound Editing (Mark Mangini, David White

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Gives Australia Biggest Ever Oscar Haul

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Gives Australia Biggest Ever Oscar Haul
Australian is reveling in the multiple Oscar award successes for “Mad Max: Fury Road.”

On Sunday night the George Miller-directed post-apocalyptic sequel collected six of the technical awards on offer, rewarding eight Australians.

The previous best total for Australia was six Oscars in four categories in 1996, when Miller’s “Babe” and Mel Gibson’s “Braveheart” amassed hauls.

Australian winners in the best production design category were Colin Gibson and Lisa Thompson.

“It never ceases to annoy me how many people it takes to make me look competent,” said Gibson in his on stage acceptance speech. “To get one of these, you’ve got an idea of the multitudes of Australians, New Zealanders, Brits, Americans, South Africans, Namibians who all came together under George’s vision to bring you a tale about a man with mental health issues, an amputee amazon and five runaway sex slaves.

Oscars 2016: report

Oscars 2016: report
Open Road / Participant Media’s journalism procedural prevailed in one of the most closely fought contests in years to claim the best picture prize at the finale of the 88th Academy Awards on Sunday.

In two of the most widely predicted wins of the night, Leo DiCaprio was named best actor for The Revenant and Brie Larson scooped the best lead actress prize for Room.

Earlier, Mexican filmmaker Alejandro G Innaritu made it back-to-back wins when he claimed the best directing prize for The Revenant after his triumph last year for Birdman. Inarritu was the frontrunner in the category after prevailing in the DGA awards.

Earlier in the night George Miller’s wildly popular dystopian adventure burst out of the blocks at the 88th Academy Awards, earning six awards including best editing and sound editing.

Margaret Sixel took the editing award after a three-in-a-row crafts triumph that saw Mad Max: Fury Road pick up statuettes for costume

Mad Max: Fury Road Gets 10 Academy Award Nominations

Mad Max: Fury Road Gets 10 Academy Award Nominations
What a lovely day to win an Oscar! The Academy Awards announced their nominees this morning, and Mad Max: Fury Road came in second for most nominations behind The Revenant. It’s a nice change from the typical epic dramas that always get nominated every year, and now the road to the Oscars will be a furious one. In fact, it’s the first action movie to ever be nominated for Best Picture. I only hope if George Miller wins Best Director, he’ll spray his teeth silver up on stage while accepting the award. Here are the nominations Mad Max has received:

Best Picture Best Director (George Miller) Best Film Editing (Margaret Sixel) Best Cinematography (John Seale) Best Costume Design (Jenny Beavan) Best Makeup and Hairstyling (Lesley Vanderwalt, Elka Wardega and Damian Martin) Best Production Design (Colin Gibson, Lisa Thompson) Best Sound Editing (Mark Mangini and David White) Best Sound Mixing (Chris Jenkins,

But how many Academy Awards could Mad Max: Fury Road actually pick up next month? Well, to start off, let.s have a look at each of the Oscar nominations that Mad Max: Fury Road picked up.

‘Star Wars,’ ‘Hateful Eight,’ ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Walking Dead’ Score Cinema Audio Society Nominations

‘Star Wars,’ ‘Hateful Eight,’ ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Walking Dead’ Score Cinema Audio Society Nominations
After being passed over by every guild and industry group so far this season, “The Hateful Eight” finally caught a break Tuesday with a nomination from the Cinema Audio Society, celebrating excellence in sound mixing. The film joined “Bridge of Spies,” “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “The Revenant” in the live action motion picture category, all three of which have performed well with organizations like the Art Directors Guild, the American Society of Cinematographers and the Producers Guild of America in recent weeks.

The fifth spot went to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” an on-again, off-again player on the circuit this season with mentions from the American Cinema Editors and the art directors and costume designers guilds. That left Ridley Scott’s “The Martian” as the surprise exclusion for a group that, it should be noted, has a slightly different makeup than the Academy’s sound branch, featuring a wider

"Bridge of Spies," "Carol" Lead BAFTA Nominations! Where's "Mad Max?" What About "Star Wars?"

Leave it to the Brits! The BAFTA nominations were announced and they gave us a slightly different look at the awards season! For instance, Tom McCarthy's "Spotlight," the leading Oscar contender in the U.S. just received 3 noms including Best Film, Supporting Actor for Mark Ruffalo and Original Screenplay. No Director nomination for McCarthy.

Meanwhile, Steven Spielberg's "Bridge of Spies," a handsomely-produced period piece led the pack along with Todd Haynes' "Carol," another handsomely-produced period piece. Both films garnered nine nominations each including Best Picture. "Bridge of Spies" and "Carol" will duke it out with "Spotlight," Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu's "The Revenant" (eight nominations), and Adam McKay's "The Big Short" (five nominations) for the Best Picture trophy.

So where's "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" you ask? They're relegated to the technical categories. Apparently, sequels, no matter how great they are, can't compete with originals.
