the 3rd AACTA Awards were held yesterday in Sydney. I had the opportunity to attend these awards. And got good seats too (but that's for another topic altogether).
The winners are here in spoiler for length:
For the film awards, The Great Gatsby won just about everything. Baz Lurhman's acceptance speech on behalf of Leonardo DiCaprio for best actor was great (im not the biggest fan of Lurham, but yeah, great speech). He talked about the young actor from The Rocket who is 10 years old who was also nominated and how DiCaptrio started his career, and told him and other aspiring actors to not give up etc. Good speech. But this was cut from Ten! Booo. Hissss.
Good to see Jackie Weaver get the Hall of Fame award. Another great speech from her. Well deserving.
For the television awards, I think it was a good run of winners overall. The nominations were great too. Im happy that Claudia Karvan won for Time of our Lives. Was a little gem that aired on the abc. Aldo happy that Shaun Micallef won Best Comedy Performer. His speech was great and funny.

comedy tv is back

Im glad that a comedy award is back. It's long overdue.
On a side note - anyone else interested in the AACTA Awards besides me in this forum? It looks like its just me posting in here (since October 2010!) lol
Is there a thread for the emmy awards?
The nominations came out today
I'm pretty sure there is an Emmy Awards thread. I'll have a look and bump it up.
going on the AACTA website, the 2015 Awards will be held on Thursday 29 January.
The Luncheon (for the smaller awards) will be held on Tuesday 27 January.
I cant seem to find a date of when nominations will be revealed. All I am getting is "later in 2014".
This is how the Logies should be. TV and Film awards that are based for the previous years should have an awards ceremony late January / Early February. The Logies are held early May. Too late in the season if you ask me.
On another note - there have been some good Aussie films in contention for the upcoming AACTA Awards. Sadly, there weren't many "blockbusters" this time around to boost up these awards.
the nominations for the 4th AACTA Awards was announced a few weeks ago. Here are the nominations (in spoiler, because of space and its a long list)
For the television awards, I am happy that Rake, with cast Richard Roxburgh and Dan Wyllie, were nominated for the show. Also glad that Janet King and its star Martha Dusseldorp were nominated. Glad that the INXS miniseries is up for a few gongs too. However, I am sad to see that The Time of Our Lives and its cast weren't nominated anywhere. Nor is Shaun Micallef, who won last years Comedy Performer award.
As for the film awards, I am glad to see The Water Diviner and Railway Man there for best film. Surprised to see Colin Firth for the Railway Man not nominated. Also surprised to not see Healing and Don Hany not be nominated. The Babadook is up for a few gongs. I didn't like this film (its one of the films with mixed reviews)
The winners will be announced in late January.
The 4th AACTA Awards will be airing on Channel Ten this Thursday night. The coverage starts at 8.30pm. It will be hosted by Cate Blanchett and Deborah Mailman.
I hope that they will show ALL of the major awards, after not showing Best Actor and Best Actress at last years awards!
the 4th AACTA Awards were held last night in Sydney, with coverage on Channel Ten.
I was happy with some of the winners, including The Water Diviner (for Best Film and for Best Supporting Actor to Yilmaz Erdogan - very Deserving) and to The Railway Man (best screenplay). For the television awards, I am happy that Marta Dusseldorp winning Best Actress (for Janet King), Utopia winning Best Comedy and Devils Playground winning Mini-Series.
Very disappointed in Ten's coverage. Its pathetic editing for the ceremony was dodgy and cutting out so many awards was beyond a joke. They screwed up the Hall-of-Fame Inductee's speech too!
I wasn't a big fan of the film The Babadook, so I was a little annoyed it won best film too. I didn't hate it, but thought it was an okay film.
Cate Blachett and Deborah Mailman were good hosts for the awards this year.

the 6th AACTA Awards was on Wednesday night. Hacksaw Ridge won most of the film awards. Sadly, the film Pawno was snubbed in some acting categories. Should have won at least one acting award. Such a great independent film.
