On January 9, the five Oscar nominees will be selected from this list, so Fury Road has yet to be nominated in this category.

Would love to be wrong but I don't see it getting best picture; too populist, too scifi. Yes, Lord Of The Rings & Gladiator show that there is a small chance but I think FR is just too left field. If it was to win, it would be a revelation.

I still think the Oscars is different. More elitist, more snobby. Would love to be wrong but the Oscars are usually just so damned pretensious!

I think that Carol is likely to win; not my idea of a good lesbian flick for sure ;)

Not that it means anything, but Quentin Tarantino said Fury Road was the best film he saw in 2015 (though he apparently didn't see many anyway).

“I got a print of ‘Mad Max’ on 35mm and I watched it in my house. And I had it all weekend, and I ended up watching it three different times," he said. However, he did admit his reluctance at first to watch the movie at all, given the new casting of Max Rockatansky.

“I resisted seeing it, for a while, because I was like, ‘Mad Max? Without Mel Gibson? Forget that.’ In a world where Mel Gibson exists, how can you cast Tom Hardy? Then I saw the movie. ‘Okay, it’s terrific.’ And he’s pretty good in it, I have to admit,” he added.

The Producers Guild has chosen Fury Road as one 10 nominees for the PGA's best film award. This is possibly the best indication to date that the movie could be nominated for a BP Oscar.
