(Ed: Australia is the only country that sends a delegation to Hollywood to hand out awards to Hollywood. You can call it chutzpah, cheek, up itself or gratuitous, but AACTA sees it as a way of marketing itself and raising its profile (via the media attention). And given that Hollywood thrives on awards, everybody turns up.)

* The AACTA International Awards recognise film excellence regardless of geography. These Awards are determined by the invitation only AACTA International Chapter which comprises 140 Australian screen professionals with distinguished international credentials, many of whom are also members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
