MAD MAX: FURY ROAD again tops with the most wins earning best director trophy, editing and cinematography. BROOKLYN won for its actress Saoirse Ronan and adapted screenplay. LOVE & MERCY also won for its Actor and original screenplay. CAROL for its production design. But it was SPOTLIGHT that won best picture as it has been winning, for the most while.
