"Mad Max: Fury Road" nabbed the award for Best Film from the National Board of Review. So could an Oscar nomination be in the future? (Video via Warner Bros. / "Mad Max: Fury Road")
The NBR has a pretty impressive track record of predicting Oscar nominations. Nine of its last ten best film winners were nominated for Best Picture. But of those, only two won.
Mad Max's win is still significant though because we usually don't see action films nominated for Best Picture. And even when an action movie is nominated, it seldom wins.
