In case ‘ya missed a lil’ thing called ‘F YEAH ‘STRAYAN FILM’ yesterday – also known as ‘Mad Mad: Fury Road‘ cleans up at the Oscars – George Miller‘s dystopian film yesterday won about a bajillion little gold statues.
The full list of ’em:
Costume Design: Jenny Beavan
Makeup: Lesley Vanderwalt, Elka Wardega and Damian Martin
Sound Editing: Mark Mangini and David White
Sound Mixing: Chris Jenkins, Gregg Rudloss and Ben Osmo
Production Design: Production design by Colin Gibson; set decoration by Lisa Thompson
Basically, this was the entire cast / crew / Australia:
This morning, director George Miller gave his first post-Oscars interview to 2Day FM’s Rove & Sam, and apart from a hectically cringy moment when Rove came up with #GeorgeSquad for Miller’s ~Oscar party posse~ and Sam Frost declared “that should be trending”, it was a cute ‘lil interview with a v. hungover and v. happy director.
“We never expected to even be in the race, and to see so many gold statues was fantastic,” he said.
“Initially she was a bit sceptical about doing it [editing ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’],” he said. “She was like, ‘This is a big, action movie, why do you think I could do it?’, and I said, ‘Because it will be different to all the other big, action movies’. There’s a tendency for people to follow the style of other movies, but in this case this needed its own special style.
“I also knew just how good she was, and I turned out to be right in this case! Really really good.”
Here she is, winning like a champ:

George also dropped the goss that two people tried and failed to sneak into the Vanity Fair’s 2016 Oscars Party using fake Oscars. (Which, btw, ~everyone who is anyone~ was at last night, looking like straight-up fire.)
“If you don’t have a ticket, one way you get in is with an Oscar,” he said. “And last night, they picked up two fake Oscars that people tried to get in with.
“Luckily Margaret’s was a real one so we got in.”
