Oscars Voting Ending Today with Mad Max: Fury Road as The Most-Nominated Movie
  • Oscars voting come to a close with Mad Max: Fury Road as surprising contender

The Academy members will start voting on January 8th but not before Mad Max: Fury Road has risen incredibly in various categories as a prominent contender.

The official website of the Academy of Motion Pictures and Science announced that the voting for the 88th Annual ceremony draws to a close on January 8th. After the votes have been cast at 5 p.m. PT, they will be tabulated and verified by the international accounting firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers. While that process is underway, we can only wait until January 14th when the nominations are scheduled to be announced. 

While we are waiting, there are other institutes that have been hailed as sure predictors of the Oscars nominations. There nominations have also ended up becoming nominations for the Oscars.

The Producer Guild Awards that have been awarded since 1990 announced its own list of nominations recently. The PGA has been one of those awards where the movies that have been nominated have also been nominated for Oscars since the past eight years. 

One movie that has come up as a prominent contender despite the competition and everyone’s expectations, Mad Max: Fury Road has not only been nominated for Best Picture but it has also beaten out some fair competition including Todd Haynes’ Carol, blockbuster of the year; Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, successful Rocky spinoff Creed and Room.

All these movies were being hailed as potential contenders for the Oscars, no one expected that Mad Max: Fury Road would make it, reported SMH. The George Miller's post-apocalyptic head trip, that you would probably marvel at, is the product of designer Colin Gibson who created an entire civilization that looked (dys)functional to every last detail.

The movie is already a blaring icon in technical categories and if we add best picture nomination; Mad Max: Fury Road will lead the field with 10 nods. Or nine if the costume branch doesn't come through.

This year's Oscar best picture will likely come from the group of 10 movies the PGA has nominated including The Big Short, Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn, Ex Machina, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian, The Revenant, Sicario, Spotlight and Straight Outta Compton.

Nominations voting for the 88th Oscars® will close on Friday, January 8, at 5 p.m. PT. The votes will be tabulated and verified by the international accounting firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers.

The 88th Oscars Nominations Announcement will be broadcast live on Thursday, January 14, from the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

Oscars for outstanding film achievements of 2015 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, February 28, 2016, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center and televised live on the ABC Television Network at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.  The Oscars will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
