    Just hours after the PGA noms came out Pete Hammond (Deadline) and I dished the state of the races — listen to our podcast.

    Or watch the video slugfest by Gold Derby editors: me, Chris and Daniel — HERE

    Are you guys ever going to have Anne Thmpson again? I think she was the most insightful and spot on with her predictions. Laughing

    The denial towards Mad Max Fury Road is just crazy, and comparing it with The Dark Knight makes no sense.

    1) Mad Max Fury Road is the best film of the
    year according to critics, it is on more than 400 top 10 lists and is #1 in
    more than 130. 

    2)It’s critically acclaim it has more than 97%
    RT and 89 at Metacritic.

    3) It’s been nominated to every critics group
    and has been winning many of them, and runner-up in others. 

    4) It got nominated at Golden Globe, Critics
    Choice, SAG for best stunt Ensemble, ACE, ADG, and PGA so far. 

    5) It is the film with the most momentum right
    now, therefore the voters are watching it. 

    6) It has Warner Brothers campaigning for it.
    Almost every year they get a Best Picture nomination, sometimes two, and they
    are one of the production companies with the most nominations. They were the
    ones who helped Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close get a Best Picture nod,
    that says a lot. If they got ELIC a nod, they can definately get one for Mad Max Fury
    Road. Plus they only have Creed and Mad Max Fury Road getting awards attention this year, and Creed is being left out by all the guilds, which makes Mad Max Fury Road their only hope actually.

    And remember that the Dark Night didn’t get in because at the time there were only 5 slots for Best Picture.

    ^True. If the hesitation is because it’s a “genre film”, and the most atypical film of the year, well it’s 2016. Since TDK, there have been a few genre movies that have placed in the BP list: Inception and District 9 being examples. MMFR has fared better in precursors, critics groups, critics lists, guilds than any of those so far. The directors of those movies also did not fare as well as George Miller has, who has reaped both nods and actually wins from everywhere. In fact, Miller has won the most directing awards from critics’ circles so far.
