A total of 15 films received nominations this year with THE IRISHMAN leading the way with six nominations, followed by ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD with five nominations, then JOKER and PARASITE both receiving four nominations each. The four noteworthy films also compete for the International AACTA Award for Best Film alongside Australian film THE KING, which recently won four Awards at the 2019 AACTA Awards presented by Foxtel in Sydney.

Also recognised at the Sydney-hosted AACTA Awards was Best Film nominee PARASITE, which took home the Award for Best Asian Film presented by Eureka International Group. The film’s producer Kwak Sin-ae attended the ceremony in Australia to accept the prestigious award. PARASITE is now one of the most acclaimed films of 2019 winning over 40 International Awards to date.

AACTA International Award nominees, who also received Golden Globe nominations yesterday, include Toni Collette (KNIVES OUT), Nicole Kidman (BOMBSHELL) and Margot Robbie (BOMBSHELL, ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD), dominating the Best Supporting Actress category this year. This marks a first in AACTA International Awards history that Australians have received four of the five nominations within the same category. This includes another first for AACTA with Robbie’s record-breaking double nomination within the same category.

The winner of the Awards will be announced in Los Angeles at the 9th AACTA International Awards Ceremony on Friday 3 January 2020 (PST) and Saturday 4 January 2020 (AEDT).
