Sounds like I wasn't the only person who didn't watch. Ratings were an 8 year low.

^ who gives a shit.?!

One Million Dollar question: how long does it take to win 6 Oscars ? Answer: 35 minutes :lol: :mrgreen:

WOOOOOHHOOOH!!! What an amazing night.

So glad George Miller took home at least one Academy award.
Okay, it's Margaret Sixel engraved at the bottom of the statuette, but who cares ?

We were all shocked when it was even nominated, then it goes onto win 6 beating Star Wars and the Revenant in so many areas.

I think it would have been a bit much to win best picture and director aswell but I've no idea how the oscars even work.

Hopefully this kicks WB into gear and they give George a big bag of money and a ticket to Namibia again.

I believe for each category members of the Academy in the respective area can vote in their field of work. Example, Directors who are members vote for the Best Director award and so forth. Best Picture is decided by every Academy member who rank their favorite films.

Colin Gibson isn't happy with Miller's Oscar snub.

Oscars 2016: 'I felt we were robbed,' says Mad Max: Fury Road winner about George Miller missing out

Amid all the excitement that followed Mad Max: Fury Road's record six Academy Awards, there was just one regret for the Australian winners.

George Miller missed winning best director for the acclaimed action movie.

After a round of post Oscar parties, Colin Gibson, who won for best production design, told Fairfax Media he was upset there was not a seventh award for the visionary filmmaker behind Fury Road.

"I think I would have given up all six for George to get best director," Gibson said. "I do seriously feel that he had earned it and was owed it."

Within the first 90 minutes of the Oscars, the fourth Mad Max broke the record for most wins by an Australian film with six.

As well as Gibson and Lisa Thompson for best production design, it won best costume design (Jenny Beavan​), editing (Margaret Sixel​), make-up and hairstyling (Lesley Vanderwalt​, Elka Wardega and Damian Martin), sound editing (Mark A. Mangini​ and David White) and sound mixing (Ben Osmo​, Chris Jenkins and Gregg Rudloff​).

Fury Road missed out for best picture, director – with Miller nominated for both – as well as best cinematography and visual effects.

The director won an Oscar in 2006 for Happy Feet as best animated feature and has three previous nominations for writing Lorenzo's Oil and writing and producing Babe.

Gibson said he understood why Mexico's Emmanuel Lubezki won best cinematography for The Revenant – his third consecutive Oscar after Gravity and Birdman – but did not believe Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu should have collected best director for the survival epic.

"We came out so long ago and it's easy to untangle the strands of technical stuff and just take a lead from the guilds but when it comes to what everybody's talking about – the water cooler talk of Los Angeles – The Revenant came out at exactly the right time ...

"Obviously [Inarritu] did a great job and he's a very clever man but [Miller] reinvented the genre and invented his own way of cutting ... and using a whole new set of tools and making them his own. I just thought they missed a golden opportunity."

Gibson said there had to be some disappointment for Miller despite all the recognition for Fury Road at the Oscars.

"Of course he was happy for everyone else and he was overjoyed for Margie [his editor and wife] but how could you not be disappointed," he said. "He'll say he's perfectly happy and I'm sure he is deep down but I'm not.

"I just think there was a bit of an injustice. I felt we were robbed.

"What we do for a living is we twine together all the collaborators – the make-up, the hair, the wardrobe, the concepts, the visual effects, the design, the acting, the stunts and the cinematography. We put them all together then you pump up the volume with sound and editing.

"Whoever's in charge of all of that must have an incredible responsibility and therefore be owed. So if you can get six out of 10 nominations – and those six are integral to what it was – it does seem rather odd the director misses out."

David White, who won an Oscar for best sound editing, agreed that Miller deserved to win.

"All of us felt disappointed that George didn't win for best director," he said. "Our team leader was the extraordinary director George Miller, who is the smartest person I've ever met.

"He's a phenomenal human being, extremely humble, totally lovely. We're all going 'poor George, I wish he'd won' but he was going 'no, no, no'. He's so humble.

"There's no way he's going to feel bad and take away anybody's enjoyment of what they've just achieved. He's a very generous person in that respect."

White was full of praise for how Miller had overcome apparently endless setbacks to deliver his vision of the action movie.

"There's probably less than a handful of people in the world like George," he said. "This guy has had a singular vision to do this film."

It took 12 years to make the movie – shooting Happy Feet and Happy Feet 2 during delays in production – then having to shift the cast and crew to Namibia because heavy rain at Broken Hill had left the desert blossoming.

"They had to shoot in Namibia under the most extreme circumstances," White said. "We're talking boiling hot during the day and freezing cold at night and sand and dust and chaos and each shot had real vehicles moving along at 60, 80, 100 kms an hour.

"Think of the logistics of this when you're only cutting into a shot for one second. All of those vehicles have got to be in just the right positions and they've got stuntmen on the top of them jumping off and explosions happening and cars kicking up in the air. It's extraordinary." ... n7ef3.html

Regarding Miller, everyone will agree he deserved to win and I'm sure in the end it was a close race.

Colin Gibson is right when he says that The Revenant came out at exactly the right time.
The whole Oscar-(bait) campaign for The Revenant was hands down really clever.
Even while they were filming, Inarritu reported about the 'toughest shoot ever' in the history of cinema
and it worked out for him and Di Caprio.

But something more delightful:

^Watching that it makes a lot of sense now why it took so long to be edited together after filming and why a lot of the dialogue doesn't line up properly.
