Could Tom Hardy Be Heading For Oscar Glory With Mad Max?

Mad Max: Fury Road receives its European premiere this week at Cannes and has already been the subject of a number of five star reviews in the UK.

William Hill thinks there could be even more accolades coming the way of the film offering 10/1 that it wins Best Picture at the Oscars and 6/1 that Tom Hardy wins the Academy Award for Best Actor. It is 5/1 that the movie takes more than $1bn at the worldwide box office.

“The reviews of this movie are through the roof and this could be the first real Oscar contender of the year,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Tom Hardy could be the next Brit to pick up Best Actor.”
