George Miller’s action film, Mad Max: Fury Road, sweeps up the technical awards at the Academy Awards, smashing the Australian record of three Oscars for The Piano in 1993. The triumphs of Mad Max: Fury Road mean Australia has achieved a record haul of Oscars. The film has swept up awards for best costume design, production design, makeup and hairstyling, editing, sound editing and sound mixing.

Miller, himself, missed out on the directing Oscar with The Revenant’s Alejandro González Iñárritu winning his second consecutive Academy Award, as did veteran Australian cinematographer John Seale who also missed out to competition from The Revenant in the form of winner Emmanuel Lubezki.
