Mad Max: Fury Road blows away the competition at the Awardswatch Film Circle Half-Way Awards with 16 Nominations

 

The nominations for the Half-Way awards for 2015 from the Awardswatch Film Circle were revealed this morning with Mad Max: Fury Road obliterating the competition with 16 nominations. It earned a mention in nearly every category for which it was eligible, save Best Supporting Actress. Ex Machina came in 2nd with 11 nods and stands as the film with the highest nomination total without a Best Picture nomination.

The nominations saw a wide range of films and styles that represent the diversity of the Awardswatch forums. Big hits like Mad Max: Fury Road and Cinderella did well but foreign films and indies were no slackers. Looking at Best Picture finds films like The Duke of Burgundy and About Elly making the cut and in Best Actress you have no less than 3/5 nominees coming from foreign language films, including Golshifteh Farahani for About Elly and Ronit Elkabetz for Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem. Saint Laurent was a strong player with seven nominations and Clouds of Sils Maria with five hit all of the majors; Best Picture, Best Director (Olivier Assayas), Best Actress (Juliette Binoche), Best Supporting Actress (Kristen Stewart) and Best Original Screenplay.

The Awardswatch Film Circle Awards (AFCA) are gathered from the Awardswatch forums and were formerly known as the INOCAs pre-2015. In all, 28 ballots were submitted. Voting for the winners takes place from now until Monday, July 27th and you can be a part of it. Vote for your choices here.
