George Millers long-awaited return to the dusty dystopian Aussie badlands, which also won the award for best-reviewed science-fiction movie, was named the top cinema on broad release after scoring a 97% fresh rating on the site. Room, Lenny Abrahamsons drama about a mom and son living in extreme circumstances, was named the best-reviewed movie on limited release, after scoring 98% from critics. Its superstar, Brie Larson, picked up the best actress in a drama award at the Golden Globes on 10 January.
Pixars Inside Out and the period narrative Brooklyn, starring Saoirse Ronan, also scored 98%. Rotten Tomatoes noted that fewer critics had posted reviews for these film, and therefore placed them lower in the rankings for its annual Golden Tomato awardings than Fury Road according to an adjusted measurement.
