MAD MAX: FURY ROAD SWEEPS THE SEATTLE FILM CRITICS SOCIETY AWARDS


You wanted quality, you got it. The Seattle Film Critics Society presented us with a fine slate of nominees last week, and they've followed up finely with their choice of winners. Mad Max: Fury Road sweeps, taking 10 of its 11 nominations; acting winners included Nina Hoss for Phoenix and Mya Taylor for Tangerine; Carol's Phyllis Nagy won the Adapted Screenplay award; The Look of Silence was named Best Documentary of 2015. This will easily rank among the very best set of awards this season. See for yourself:
