New Day. New Awards

And we’re off! The National Board of Review have unveiled their honourees for 2015 and, to some surprise, George Miller’s crazy batshit Mad Max Fury Road was named as Best Film. The Martian landed best Director for Sir Ridders and Best Actor for Matt Damon. The brilliant Brie Larson scooped Best Actress for Room, whilst Sly Stallone’s seventh outing as Rocky bagged him a well-deserved Best Supporting Actor. The Hateful 8 nabbed two gongs – screenplay for QT and Supporting Actress for Jennifer Jason Leigh. The Martian also picked up Best Adapted Screenplay whilst Inside Out, surprising no one at all – was named Best Animated Feature.
