AACTA AWARDS 2013 – WINNERS

With The Sapphires sweeping up just about every award available, the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) has crowned the film as Australia’s 2013 movie triumph, adding to its $14.4 million box office take.

The AACTA Awards were presented in three sections: the award for international films (presented in Los Angeles by Russell Crowe), the un-televised AACTA luncheon at The Star in Sydney on Monday January 28, and the televised (Network 10) presentation on Wednesday, January 31.

The first batch of the AACTA Awards were presented at a lunch on Monday, January 28 at Star City, hosted by Adam Elliot and featuring the presentation to Al Clark of the Raymond Longford Award. In addition to his achievements as an extraordinary and tenacious producer, Clark is also noted by a cross section of the industry as a mentor and educator whom many credit with helping to launch their careers. A number of these people provided moving and entertaining video tributes interspersed throughout the luncheon, including Guy Pearce, Joel Edgerton, Deborra-Lee Furness, Miranda Otto, Lizzy Gardiner, Tim Chappel, Jodi Matterson and Patrick Hughes.
