The miniseries Stateless, produced by Cate Blanchett, and Shannon Murphy’s feature film directorial debut Babyteeth dominated negotiations at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards (AACTA Awards).
At a ceremony Monday night at The Star in Sydney, the immigrant drama Stateless received 13 awards, including best television series or miniseries, best screenplay on television, and all four acting awards in the entire television drama. The outback detective series Mystery Road was named best drama. In the film, Babyteeth received nine awards on Monday, including Best Picture and Best Director for Murphy.
Neither Russell Crowe, who was recently named President of AACTA, nor Nicole Kidman, who was named Vice President, could attend.
However, Crowe sent a video message encouraging ambition, speaking of green shoots both after the forest fires and after the COVID crisis, and hopes that the recent recovery in the manufacturing sector can be made sustainable.
« I would like to encourage the federal government to use this time to create a platform so that this production increase can continue. With the right support, the display industry can act as a powerful engine for economic recovery, « said Crowe.
The results on Monday closely matched the AACTA Industry Awards, which were presented on Friday in a wider range of craft categories. Then Stateless received six AACTA industry awards and Babyteeth received two.
While the political relationship between Australia and China is reaching new heights, AACTA has awarded two awards to Chinese films. Better Days won Best Asian Film, and The Eight Hundred won Best VFX, much of which was provided by Australian company Rising Sun.
The Byron Kennedy Award was also given to recognize the impact of Australian low-budget genre filmmaking. Jennifer Kent, director of 2014 Breakout The Babadook, was named the winner.
Steve Bedwell, Bryan Cockerill and Geraldine Coy jointly received the first AACTA Reg Grundy Award, which was set up to encourage new voices in on-screen entertainment and accelerate original productions. Their price was $ 50. 000 in cash and development funds created for their television entertainment concept Seven Pups.
