MAD MAX: FURY ROAD RIDES TO VICTORY WITH GEORGIA CRITICS


The Georgia Film Critics Association made its feelings pretty clear with its awards for films in 2015. The Oscar frontrunners all fell away - some at nomination stage - to make way for Mad Max: Fury Road, which wins four awards. Well deserved, I say, and quite refreshing after the film's snub earlier today in top categories at BAFTA. Have a look:
