MAD MAX WINS WITH THE CHICAGO FILM CRITICS ASSOCIATION


The Chicago Film Critics Association isn't having much to do with the current surge for Spotlight - the Oscar frontrunner wins just one award with the association, the one it was practically destined to win: Original Screenplay. Otherwise, Mad Max: Fury Road rather cleans up, taking five awards from seven nominations. Have a look at those nominations! And have a look at the award winners too:
