a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

Well, I never thought this would happen! “Mad Max:Fury Road” was just named Best Picture by the National Board of Review! Unbelievable! Will discuss this more at length when I’m not typng on an NYPL computer! It’s not called “The 15 Minute Express” for nothing! Best Director was Ridley Scott for “The Martian” Best Actor was Matt Damon, also for “The Martian.” Both expected! Best Actress was Brie Larson, thank god! For “Room.” After last night’s defeat at the Gothams by unknown Bel Powley, I was wondering….

Best Supporting Actor is Sly Stallone for “Creed” and Best Supporting Actress is Jennifer Jason Leigh for “Hateful Eight” which has only JUST started screening today! Best Foreign Film is “Son of Saul” which is the beginning of its’ awards trajectory.

But “Mad Max”???? Never in a million years would I have thought of “Mad Max” and the National Board of Review in the same sentence!
