    WOW at that statistic! 

    Mad Max: Fury Road and The Revenant are the first films to get a perfect 8/8 craft nominations (Cinematography, Editing, Production Design, Costume Design, Makeup, Visual Effects, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing) at the Oscars since Master and Commander (2003).

    In the past 19 years, 3 films came close with 7/8. Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring (2001) (missed only Sound Editing), The Dark Knight (2008) (missed only Costume Design) and Hugo (2011) (missed only Makeup)

    This is quite impressive!

    “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” got the same 8 in 2003.

    And in 2008, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” was also close; it just missed sound editing.

    Yes, Master and Commander also got 8/8. How did I miss it. 

    Still, first ones in 12 years.

    Haha, I just noticed that Master and Commander and Mad Max are nominated for the same 10 awards.

    They are ultimately not going to publish this on the blog, but I put a lot of work into it, so want to share:

    The Revenant and Mad Max: Fury Road are expected to be so dominant at the
    Oscars that no other film is expected to win multiple awards.  This would be the first time that only two
    films nabbed more than one Oscar since 1996 when The English Patient went nine
    for twelve and Fargo went two for seven.

    The Revenant is favored to win four of its twelve races (Best Picture,
    Director, Actor and Cinematography) and Mad Max six of ten (Costume Design, Film Editing,
    Makeup and Hairstyling, Production Design, Sound Editing and Sound Mixing).  The critically-acclaimed,
    big-budget visual spectacle has become a mainstay of the Oscars in recent years,
    between the likes of Gravity (seven wins from ten nominations for 2013), Life
    of Pi
    (four wins from eleven nominations for 2012) and Hugo (five wins from
    eleven nominations for 2011).  But one
    per year is par for the course, not two.

    That there is a pair of technical marvels this year has left little hope
    for Best Picture nominees Bridge of Spies (six nominations), Brooklyn (three
    nominations) and The Martian (seven nominations); all are expected to go home
    empty-handed on Oscar night.  This
    starkly contrasts last year, which saw all eight Best Picture nominees take
    home a trophy.  (The remaining three Best
    Picture nominees are among this year’s biggest Oscar locks: The Big Short for
    Adapted Screenplay, Room for Actress and Spotlight for Original Screenplay.)

    It would be consistent with BAFTA, which also saw only The Revenant (five
    wins from eight nominations) and Mad Max (four wins from seven nominations) bag
    multiple awards.  Like the Oscars, BAFTA
    had yielded just one year in the last two decades with a mere two films winning
    multiple awards—2008 when Slumdog Millionaire went seven for eleven and The
    Curious Case of Benjamin Button
    went three for eleven.  Carol bore the brunt of the auteur
    blockbusters at BAFTA, as it won none of its nine nominations.  Although The Imitation Game suffered as many
    defeats last year with no wins, Carol is the first film to be shut out at BAFTA
    after leading in nominations since 1991, when Dances with Wolves also had nine.

    Carol has been a perennial bridesmaid to The Revenant and Mad Max this
    awards season.  It led the Golden Globes with
    five nominations, but it was skunked as The Revenant won a leading three awards.  At the Critics’ Choice Awards, Carol trailed
    only Mad Max in nominations; Carol lost all nine of its races and Mad Max won
    just as many.  Carol is not favored to score
    an Oscar either.  Its six nominations are
    the most for a film without a Best Picture nomination since the Oscars expanded
    the top category from a fixed five slots seven years ago.

    The Martian went zero for six at BAFTA and zero for nine at Critics’
    Choice, but won Globes for Best Film Comedy and Best Film Comedy Actor.  Brooklyn won Best British Film from six
    nominations at BAFTA, but lost its single Globe race and five at Critics’
    Choice.  Bridge of Spies won Best
    Supporting Actor at BAFTA from nine nominations and also lost its sole Globe
    race and five at Critics’ Choice.
