AACTA International Awards Nominations Led By ‘The Irishman’, ‘Hollywood’, ‘Joker’ & ‘Parasite’

The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts has unveiled nominees for its 9th AACTA International Awards with Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman leading at six mentions. Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood landed five nods while Todd Philipps’ Joker and Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite have four each. Those titles will compete for the International AACTA Award for Best Film alongside David Michod’s The King which recently won four prizes at the main AACTA ceremony in Oz. The AACTA International Awards will be handed out on January 3 in Los Angeles.


Also in the mix of nominees this year, Bombshell had a strong showing, missing out on the Best Film field but scoring four mentions overall. The Supporting Actress category is dominated by Australians with Toni Collette for Knives Out and Nicole Kidman for Bombshell among nominees as well as Margot Robbie who scored two mentions for both Bombshell and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Robbie’s double nomination within the same category is a first for the AACTAs.
