Held annually in Los Angeles, the AACTA International Awards recognize the very best in screen quality, regardless of region or nationality, in seven film and four television categories. Film winners are determined by AACTA’s International Chapter, which is made up of 190 Australian film professionals, including Oscar nominees and winners Baz Luhrman, Catherine Martin, Jan Chapman And Jackie Weber. The four TV winners are chosen by the entire AACTA membership.

These awards add a uniquely Australian voice to the international awards ceremony alongside the Oscars, BAFTAs, Emmys and Golden Globes. While the Australian academy is somewhat prescient when it comes to who will find favor at the Oscars, it often favors local talent.
