The 2022 Australian Film & Television Academy of Arts (AACTA) Awards celebrated the country's film and television industry in style on Wednesday night.
Baz Luhrmann’s film Elvis was the biggest winner of the night, taking home four awards for Best Film, Best Direction in Film (Baz Luhrmann), Best Lead Actor (Austin Butler), and Best Supporting Actress in Film (Olivia DeJonge) — bringing the movie's total AACTA Award count to 11 after winning seven gongs at the AACTA Industry Awards on Monday.
Mystery Road: Origin fared exceptionally for TV shows, receiving three AACTA Awards for Best Drama Series, Best Lead Actor (Mark Coles Smith) and Actress (Tuuli Narkle) in a Drama, after receiving four Awards during Monday’s Industry Awards. This brought the show to a total of seven AACTA Awards.
Netflix's teen drama, Heartbreak High won all three of their eligible public-voted Audience Choice Award categories including Best TV Show, Best Actor (Bryn Chapman), and Best Actress (Chloe Hayden), while Thomas Weatherall won the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama.
The Masked Singer judge and former Bachelor star Abbie Chatfield was crowned Australia’s Best TV Personality, while MasterChef Australia was named Best Reality Program.
Thor star Chris Hemsworth proved he's come a long way since his Home & Away days, being named the recipient of the Trailblazer award.
"Tonight was a huge honour," he said when receiving the award from Russell Crowe.
"I don’t take for granted the opportunities the Australian screen industry has afforded me and am excited and proud that the rest of the world is discovering just how great it is to make world class movies down under with our incredible crews and creatives. I feel like we are all only really getting started."
