21st Critics Choice Awards Nominations: Mad Max: Fury Road Leads with 13

Mad Max: Fury Road, the most unexpected critics award champion of 2015 has been nominated for 13 awards from the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) who puts on the Critics Choice Movie Awards. Even if you remove the “extra” categories the BFCA employs like Action and Sci-Fi/Horror, the film still ends up with nine nominations, a very healthy haul. The film has already won the FIPRESCI Prize for Best Film of 2015 plus Best Picture from the National Board of Review, San Francisco Film Critics Circle, Boston Online Film Critics Society, the Online Film Critics Society plus runner-up at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and New York Film Critics Circle. Not bad for a summer blockbuster and 3rd sequel.

Also scooping up some BFCA love this morning were three films that tied for 2nd most nominations (9); Carol, The Martian and The Revenant. The numbers for Carol and The Revenant are most impressive as their count only comes from the main categories, not any of the subgenre ones. After much hemming and hawing about whether Rooney Mara (Carol) and/or Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) would be bumped up to Lead here, they both found a home in Supporting just as they did with the Screen Actors Guild. That made room for Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road) to double up her Best Actress nominations by scoring in the main Best Actress category as well as Action Actress. Jennifer Lawrence also managed dual nominations for the same film, Joy, since the BFCA also has a Comedy section of nominations.

Some of those surprise Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe nominee showed up today; Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren in Trumbo and LAFCA winner Michael Shannon in 99 Homes. The Supporting Actor category is proving to be the most difficult to predict this year, for any award. With six nominees (like most of their main categories except Best Picture), the BFCA found room for Shannon, Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies), Sylvester Stallone (Creed), Paul Dano (Love & Mercy), Mark Ruffalo (Spotlight) and Tom Hardy (The Revenant). That left off Jacob Tremblay for Room (he showed up in Best Younger Actor/Actress), Michael Keaton (Spotlight), Christian Bale (The Big Short) and Idris Elba (Beasts of No Nation).

Curiously missing from the group’s Best Picture lineup was Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out. With a 93 rating on their critics scorecard it seemed like an easy nomination (they’ve nominated numerous Pixar films before). Straight Outta Compton was also a film that was embraced by the BFCA and has very vocal supporters but that film only ended up with an Ensemble mention even after it received the Screen Actors Guild Cast mention last week. The Hateful Eight was the film with the highest number of nominations (6) to miss out on Best Picture.

The 21st Critics Choice Awards (for both film and television) will air January 17th, 2016 on A&E, Lifetime and LMN at 8pm PST/5pm EST and be hosted by T.J. Miller.
