AACTA Awards 2021

After this horror year, even the most jaded of us are hungry for red carpet pictures and the sight of genuine stars turning out to celebrate the achievements of the industry. Bring on the spectacle of last night’s AACTA Awards Ceremony, held at the Sydney Opera House. Baz Luhrmann was there, Eric Bana was there (winning the audience award for Favourite Actor), Taika Waititi turned up, and Baker Boy performed.

There was some genuine Australian diva dress action, coming from the likes of Deborah Mailman in queenly royal blue, Sarah Snook in red, Susie Porter in hot pink, Rebel Wilson and Rachel Griffiths in gold. (She won Best Supporting Actress in TV for her turn as a wily politician in the ABC’s Total Control.)
