Aacta International Awards Nominations Favor ‘The Irishman’

Netflix’s “The Irishman” garnered the most nominations for the Australian Academy of Cinema & Television Arts International Awards.

It picked up six nods, ahead of five for “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood,” and the four each for “Joker,” “Bombshell,” and “Parasite.”Aacta’s international awards seek to “(honor) the best achievements in film excellence, regardless of geography,” but the nominations this year have thrown up curious anomalies.

Oscars frontrunner “Parasite” and Pedro Almodovar’s Oscars hopeful “Pain and Glory” are the only two films that are not in the English language to receive any kind of nomination.

And, of the five performances worthy of recognition in the best supporting actress category, four are by Australians.

Margot Robbie received two supporting actress nominations for “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood” and “Bombshell.”The winner of the Awards will be announced at a ceremony in Los Angeles on 3 Jan.
