Huge congratulations to Isla for her Best Supporting Actress nomination at the Aussie AACTA Awards!

The Great Gatsby leads AACTA nominations

Baz Luhrmann’s blockbuster The Great Gatsby has led the nominations for the 3rd annual AACTA Awards with 14 nods, closely followed by Kim Mordaunt’s independent film The Rocket

The two are vastly different Australian features. The Great Gatsby is a razzle dazzle adaptation of an American classic novel, while The Rocket, which earned 12 nominations, is a low-budget, foreign-language feature, filmed entirely in Laos with a lead actor plucked from the streets.

It means come January, Leonardo DiCaprio will face off against former street kid Sitthiphon “Ki” Disamoe for Best Lead Actor, while Luhrmann and Mordaunt are both in the running for Best Direction, alongside Ivan Sen for Mystery Road and the 17 directors of The Turning.

The two features are also up for Best Film alongside Dead Europe, Mystery Road, Satellite Boy and The Turning.

The AACTA (Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts) CEO Damian Trewhella says the nominations show the range of films our country is producing.

“The film and television productions that have been acknowledged this year are so incredibly diverse and as an ensemble illustrate our breadth of screen talent,” he said in a statement on Tuesday.

The nominations, which recognise outstanding contributions in Australian film and television in 39 categories, were announced in Sydney on Tuesday by filmmaker Gracie Otto and Puberty Blues actor Rodger Corser.

On the small screen, Jane Campion’s gripping miniseries, Top of the Lake, shot in New Zealand, led the nominations with 10 nods, while Mrs Biggs, Power Games: The Packer-Murdoch Story and Redfern Now – Series 2 all earned eight.

The event, hosted by Rob Carlton, also revealed NSW will continue to host the AACTA Awards until 2017.
