Critics Choice Awards - Wrap Up

 Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road

It was a star-studded night at the 21st annual Critics Choice Awards on Sunday night in Santa Monica.  

Stars of both television and film were honored with praise and trophies but it was a clean sweep for director George Miller and his action film Mad Max: Fury Road.

The fourth chapter in the Mad Max franchise swept nine categories at the Critics’ Choice awards, including best director for Miller.

Mad Max: Fury Road collected Critics’ Choice wins for production design, editing, costume design, hair and makeup, visual effects, best action movie, best actor in an action movie for Tom Hardy, and best actress in an action movie for Charlize Theron.

The show was hosted by comedian T.J Miller who had the show moving along at a good pace, but no one could contend with the adorable Jacob Tremblay who took home a well-deserved award in the category of best actor or actress under the age of 21, for his brilliant performance in Room.

Tremblay had the “room” mesmerized and smiling when he went up to the podium to collect his trophy. "Whoa! This is super cool. This is the best day of my life."

The award presenter, Bradley James, then grabbed the mic stand and held it on a slant so that it would be closer to his mouth. The composed and professional nine-year-old continued without missing a beat, "I first want to say thank you to all the critics who voted for me. It must be a super hard vote because of all the other great actors in this category," he said. "I also want to thank Team Room, who is Lenny, Emma, Brie, Ed, and all the other producers over there. I think that us working together made this movie come true, and this award doesn't just go to me for that, it goes to all of you guys as well." Tremblay, who is a native of Vancouver, British Columbia has been acting since he was two and both of his sisters also act. He finished his acceptance speech then by thanking his  mom and dad, and concluded by saying he planned to put the award on a shelf in his room -- next to his Millennium Falcon!
