Critics' Choice Awards 2016: Mad Max: Fury Road and Fargo Win Big

Critics' Choice Awards 2016

The 21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards took place in Santa Monica last night, giving us some indication of what movies may win big at this year's Academy Awards in February. Mad Max: Fury Road led the way in the Critics' Choice movie nominations, with 13 nods. It managed to pick up nine of those awards, including Best Director for George Miller.

Following on from his Golden Globe win, Leonardo DiCaprio won Best Actor for his role in The Revenant; another clue pointing toward him winning the Oscar. Or will this be another year where he picks up every award but that gold statuette? There were also wins for Sylvester Stallone in Creed (Supporting Actor) and Brie Larson in Room (Best Actress), again following the pattern of the Golden Globes.

The Critics' Choice Awards also recognize TV shows and Fargo was the big winner here, winning four of its eight nominated categories including Best Movie Made For Television or Limited Series. It was closely followed by Mr Robot with three awards including Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Christian Slater.

Read on for the full list of winners on the night and feel free to comment on the results, as well as those you think should have won each category.
