Adam Mckay

“Vice”

Variety - - Contenders -

Finding a place on sev­eral film crit­ics' best- of lists, as well as a few worst- of lists, Mckay’s se­ri­o­comic por­trait of Dick Cheney was one of the most di­vi­sive films of the year. Nor­mally, that sort of split- de­ci­sion could trou­ble a direc­tor’s chances come Os­car night, but “Vice” is a dif­fer­ent type of an­i­mal. Mckay was a sur­prise Academy nom­i­nee with his last film, “The Big Short,” and the film has strong cham­pi­ons, with best direc­tor nom­i­na­tions from the Crit­ics’ Choice Movie Awards and the Golden Globes, as well as an award from the Detroit Film Crit­ics Assn.
