    The FIPRESCI Grand Prix was awarded to Mad Max: Fury Road today (over Son of Saul, The Assassin and Taxi). I was one of the BP nom naysayers for Fury Road, but this has me now thinking it has the cred to play a major part in the race. Here’s a look at recent winners of the same prize:

    2014: Boyhood
    2013: Blue Is the Warmest Colour
    2012: Amour
    2011: The Tree of Life
    2010: The Ghost Writer
    2009: The White Ribbon
    2008: There Will Be Blood
    2007: 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days
    2006: Volver

    That’s like… super elite type cred.

    It won’t surprise me if this ends up nominated for Best Picture, but a Best Director nomination for George Miller should be a safe bet.

    This film is going to be the American Sniper of 2015, many are ignoring it thinking it doesn’t stand a chance but it does. Plus it is the best reviewed film of 2015 so far. I’m predicting it will get at least 6 nominations, even best actress for Charlize Theron.

    I think it only happened because a lot of the Western critics who vote for that haven’t seen the three movies you mentioned yet. I’ve only seen Mad Max and Taxi, and I think the latter is the far more stunning and fascinating achievement but it’s also a lot more quiet and subdued, so I’m not surprised it didn’t win that.

    And I’m not going to be duped into Mad Max’s Oscar chances. I think it might get a sound mention like Drive, and at most maybe a string of a couple of other nominations like Visual Effects and Makeup. Even if the critics go gung-ho for it (though their passion just speaks to me about how low the bar is for quality mainstream film entertainment).

    I get your point and I agree this is being underestimated at its Oscar chances, but man, the American Sniper parallel is… just no.
