Even more accolades. It should be noted that with very few exceptions, Miller is being named best director by all these critic groups, and the movie itself is either a runner up or finalist on just about every list. I think the pendulum has swung towards Miller getting the Oscar. If the Director's Guild gives it to him, it should be a lock.

The Southeastern Film Critics:

Best Director - George Miller
Best Cinematography - John Seale

Detroit Film Critics:

Best Director - George Miller

Indiana Film Journalists:

Best Director - George Miller
Best Score - Junkie XL

Also, Fury Road led all films with 13 nominations for the Critics Choice Awards.

FWIW, Variety still feels there are 4 directors who are more likely than Miller to win the Oscar.

Tom McCarthy (Spotlight)
Ridley Scott (The Martian)
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (The Revenant)
Todd Haynes (Carol)

Nowhere in the article does it say why he thought it was stupid.



...ok

Great constructive criticism there!

Are you sure you don't mean "at least 5 but up to 10 max"? I think last year there was only 7 or 8.
