Hmmmm...could Fury Road score a Best Pic nom at the Oscars. It would be nice to see a big action flick accomplish this.

Well, the point of expanding the Best Picture category was supposed to be to allow for the inclusion of more "populist" fare so... maybe? I can think of a couple of movies nominated for Best Picture since the category was expanded that deserved the nod a lot less than Fury Road, that's for sure.
