‘Mad Max: Fury Road,’ ‘Carol’ Lead AACTA International Awards

“Spotlight,” “The Revenant” and “Bridge of Spies” also won an award

“Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Carol” each received two Australian Academy Cinema Television Arts International Awards on Friday.

George Miller‘s dystopian film took home the award for Best Film and Best Direction, while “Carol,” starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, received an award for Best Supporting Actress and Best Lead Actress. Blanchett and Mara’s performances are also nominated for Saturday night’s SAG Awards, next months’ BAFTAs and Oscars.  Blanchett had previously won an AACTA International Award for her performance in “Blue Jasmine.”

Abbie Cornish, Miranda Otto, Angus Simpson, Luke Bracey and Radha Mitchell were among those presenting the awards, held at the historic Avalon Hollywood. Rachel Griffiths and Daniel MacPherson opened the show.

“The Revenant,” “Bridge of Spies” and “Spotlight” each received one award. Leonardo DiCaprio took home the award for Best Lead Actor, beating Matt Damon (“The Martian”), Eddie Redmayne (“The Danish Girl”) and Michael Fassbender (“Steve Jobs“).

Best Supporting Actor went to Mark Rylance, who portrayed the Soviet spy Rudolf Abel in Steven Spielberg‘s “Bridge of Spies.”

The AACTA International Awards will be telecast in Australia on Jan. 31 at 7:30 p.m. on Foxtel Arts and at 9:30 p.m. on Arena. It will also be available on Australian online streaming service, Presto, until Feb. 29.
