New York — The National Board of Review has named the rollicking apocalyptic adventure Mad Max: Fury Road the best film of 2015.
George Miller's latest installment in the 1970s-born franchise was a radical and unconventional curveball from the National Board of Review, one of the oldest awards bodies in movies. But the group, founded in 1909, has recently tried to shed its stodgy image, previously naming J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year and Spike Jonze's Her its top movies.
In the awards announced on Tuesday, the science-fiction hit The Martian came away with the most wins, taking best actor for Matt Damon, best director for Ridley Scott and best adapted screenplay for Drew Goddard.
Brie Larson won best actress for her performance as a captive mother in Room.
