Legendary director George Miller was in an ebullient mood as he arrived at the Oscars with his film editor wife Margaret Sixel.

The 70-year-old, who has been put forward for Best Director, as well as his film Mad Max: Fury Road landing ten nominations, arrived at the prestigious event, with a very confident thumbs up.

 

Looking dapper in a tuxedo and white bow tie, George beamed for the cameras as he stopped on the red carpet on the way to the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

 

Cheers! Legendary director George Miller, who has been put forward for Best Director, as well as his film Mad Max: Fury Road landing ten nominations, arrived at the Oscars with his wife Margaret Sixel in LA on Monday

 

Hopeful: George said he was doing jigs at home in Sydney when he heard how many gongs his film had netted

Telling of the moment they were told the project, which was filmed in Namibia and counts Tom Hardy, Megan Gale and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley among its stars, George said: 'Needless to say we're doing little happy jigs and it's really nice to be invited to the party.'

 

The movie has been nominated in ten categories, placing it just behind The Revenant starring Leonardo DiCaprio which was nominated for 12 Oscars.

George, who netted his first Oscar for Happy Feet, insisted he never expected his post-apocalypse film to be honored at the Academy Awards.
