Mad Max is major awards
contender this year. I wonder if Terminator 2 had been released in the last 5
years would it be a awards contender too? I know it won 4 technical awards, but
do you think James Cameron, The film itself or even Linda Hamilton might be up
I think Terminator was a popular enough franchise at the time to have gotten into an expanded field. It was definitely in many people’s top 10s that year, but like Mad Max, I don’t know how many academy voters would give it #1 votes. I think Mad Max has a chance of getting enough, but I doubt Terminator 2 would have.
