“Spotlight” was named Best Picture and garnered two additional wins including Best Acting Ensemble and Best Original Screenplay.  “Mad Max: Fury Road,” the most nominated film of the evening, won nine awards including Best Director for George Miller, Best Production Design for Colin Gibson, Best Editing for Margaret Sixel, Best Costume Design for Jenny Beavan, Best Hair & Makeup, Best Visual Effects, Best Action Movie, Tom Hardy for Best Actor in an Action Movie, and Charlize Theron for Best Actress in an Action Movie.
