AACTA INTERNATIONAL AWARDS 2013 – NOMINATIONS

This year’s International Awards Nominations represent a predictably Hollywood-Aussie-centric view of cinema at Australia’s fledgling Academy of Cinema and Television Arts, with the exception of the French Amour and the French/Belgian Rust and Bone (both for Best Actress).

There is nothing to suggest a distinct and different view of cinema as the nominations echo American awards. Europe is more or less ignored, as is all of Asia. But that’s not being churlish; all the nominees are indeed worthy of recognition and acclaim. The fact that they are almost exclusively American or Australian doesn’t diminish the value of the nominees and their work. 

The 2nd AACTA International Awards winners’ announcement event will be held in L.A., late January 2013.
