'Mad Max: Fury Road' Named Best Picture by the Online Film Critics Society
The group gave acting honors to Michael Fassbender for 'Steve Jobs' and Cate Blanchett for 'Carol.'
Mad Max: Fury Road has been named best picture by the Online Film Critics Society. The group, which comprises 254 online film critics from 22 countries, also voted Fury Road's George Miller as best director and awarded the film for its editing and cinematography.
Carol took home three prizes, including best actress for Cate Blanchett and best supporting actress for Rooney Mara as well as best adapted screenplay.
Best actor honors went to Michael Fassbender for Steve Jobs, and Oscar Isaac was named best supporting actor for his work in Ex Machina. The award for best original screenplay went to Spotlight.
The Assassin, Taiwan’s foreign-language Oscar submission, was hailed as best foreign-language film; The Look of Silence was named best documentary; and Inside Out earned best animated film honors.
Because the organization is composed of members from across the globe, the group also recognizes films that have not yet been released in the U.S. The honorees in that category this year were Aferim!, Cemetery of Splendor, The Club, Dheepan, The Lobster, Mountains May Depart, Mia Madre, Rams, Right Now, Wrong Then and The Sunset Song.
