ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF THE 3rd AACTA INTERNATIONAL AWARDS


LOS ANGELES: Friday 10, January 2014 8.00pm (PST)

SYDNEY: Saturday 11, January 2014 3.00pm (AEDT)


The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) today announced the winners of the 3rd AACTA International Awards, recognising screen excellence across seven categories including Best Film, Best Direction, Best Screenplay, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress.


Winners were announced at an intimate Awards Ceremony in Los Angeles hosted by multi-award winning actor and AACTA President Geoffrey Rush, who shared the stage with fellow Australian industry presenters including Jacki Weaver, Stuart Beattie, Anthony LaPaglia and Yvonne Strahovski.





BLUE JASMINE'S Australian leading lady, Cate Blanchett, was called to the stage by AACTA President Geoffrey Rush to accept the AACTA International Award for Best Actress.


Blanchett's acclaimed performance as Jasmine in the Woody Allen film has been tipped to win a raft of awards in the 2014 international awards season including a possible second Oscar which, if it occurs, would make her the first Australian actress in history to be awarded twice by AMPAS.





GRAVITY, the visual masterpiece directed by BAFTA winner and Oscar nominee Alfonso Cuarón, received the AACTA International Award for Best Film and the AACTA International Award for Best Direction.


The space odyssey, based on a story written by Alfonso Cuarón's son Jonás, pushed the known boundaries of cinematography and technology to illustrate a tense story of skill and survival set in zero gravity. A team of world renowned VFX artists worked with Cuarón to realize his extraordinary vision including visual effects supervisor Tim Webber and Australian VFX house Rising Sun Pictures.





AMERICAN HUSTLE, the most nominated film in this year's AACTA International Awards, also received two Awards: the AACTA International Award for Best Screenplay (which went to Eric Warren Singer and the film's director David O. Russell), and to actress Jennifer Lawrence who received her second AACTA International Award in a David O. Russell film; this time for her portrayal of Rosalyn, the explosively alluring and manic housewife to Christian Bale's Irving Rosenfeld.





12 YEARS A SLAVE saw wins in both actor categories with Chiwetel Ejiofor receiving the AACTA International Award for Best Actor and fellow Englishman Michael Fassbender the AACTA International Award for Best Supporting Actor. Set in pre-Civil War America, the film is based on the true story of Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York who was abducted and sold into slavery. 12 YEARS A SLAVE is directed by UK director Steve McQueen.





AACTA President, Geoffrey Rush, said: "The AACTA International Awards are Australia's international stamp of screen success. They recognise our international counterparts, add an Australian voice to international Academy discussion, and celebrate our fellow Australians working internationally.


"I congratulate all of this year's AACTA International Award nominees and winners on their compelling and inspiring work and as always I look forward with anticipation to see if our international peers have concurred with the AACTA International Chapter in this year's Awards season selection," Rush said.


The 3rd AACTA International Awards will be broadcast on Foxtel's Arena in Australia on Sunday 12 January, 2014 at 7.30pm.
