Thor actor Chris Hemsworth is the fourth recipient of AACTA's Trailblazer Award, designed to recognise an Australian screen practitioner who inspires others in the industry.
The AACTA Audience Award for Best Film will this year be a duke between local titles and Hollywood blockbusters that recently called Australia home: 'Thirteen Lives', 'Thor: Love and Thunder', 'Ticket to Paradise', 'Elvis', 'The Drover's Wife the Legend of Molly Johnson' and 'Wog Boys Forever'.
This year's AACTA Award for Best Film will be a contest between Baz Luhrmann’s 'Elvis', George Miller’s 'Three Thousand Years of Longing', Leah Purcell’s 'The Drover's Wife The Legend of Molly Johnson', Thomas M. Wright's 'The Stranger', Western Sydney anthology feature 'Here Out West', and Hannah Barlow and Kane Senes' horror 'Sissy'.
A film where dangerous and deadly animals get to be the heroes? Where better to set that than in Australia - the country "where everything can kill you"?
