Back in September, we told you that Mad Max: Fury Road was already taking home awards. The International Federation of Film Critics named it the best film of 2015, beating out The Assassin, Taxi and Son of Saul.
Now just a few months later, we can officially add another grand award. The National Board of Review has named George Miller‘s masterpiece the best film of 2015. The organization, founded back in 1909, has always been one of the first major film critic groups to announce their annual award-winners.
Unfortunately, the Academy Award voters don’t usually agree with their choices. The last five movies to get that special Best Film title by the National Board of review have been: A Most Violent Year, Her, Zero Dark Thirty, Hugo, and The Social Network. They all failed to take home the Best Picture Oscar.
There were other awards handed out by the organization. Ridley Scott won Best Director for his work on The Martian, and Matt Damon won Best Actor for his performance in the film.
MovieSmackTalk favorite Brie Larson took home the Best Actress award for her brilliant performance in Room, and Sylvester Stallone won Best Supporting Actor for his work in Creed.
I saw Creed last week and I was surprised by Stallone’s performance. His name definitely deserves to be on the list when the Oscars come around.
