    Mad Max is continuing its momentum. Never expected it could dominate an entire award show like it did here. Interesting to see if this movie can make it all the way to Oscars

  • Chicago really liked MAD MAX! Finally a sequel/remake disproving my theory that Hollywood can’t make a good sequel/remake these days!

  • Ricardo

    I’m delightfully surprised. Let’s hope they can carry out this momentum to the Oscars. I really want a sequel and more exposure and an Oscar nomination would help.

  • Brandon MacLeod

    Look at that, Leonardo DiCaprio won something. It’s not an oscar but still.
