Precursor: 20th Online Film & Television Nominations (2015)

Mad Max: Fury Road was the big nominee at this year’s OFTA film awards. With a nomination in Best Picture, a clean sweep of the techs and a number of categories in between, the film tops the nearest nominee by 3. Carol finds a boon with the group, securing a massive ten nominations, including a rare double Best Actress nomination. Star Wars: The Force Awakens also received ten nominations, but couldn’t find a spot in the Best Picture slate. The impressive haul was buoyed by two nominations in the Breakthrough Performance categories.

While some of this mirrors the Oscars, notably the Best Picture slate, only a couple of leading Oscar contenders didn’t make it onto this slate. The Big Short was a no show in Best Adapted Screenplay and Rooney Mara’s appearance in Best Actress means the Best Supporting Actress race is clear and while Alicia Vikander didn’t make it for her Oscar-nominated performance in The Danish Girl, she’s still there for her work on Ex Machina.
