The 2021 AACTA International Awards will be presented virtually at 7am January 27 Australia time, which is 12pm PT January 26.

Celebrating the most outstanding film and television productions made this year, the awards are determined by many of Australia’s leading filmmakers and content creators.

This is the second year AACTA has extended the awards to include global TV across four categories. Succession and The White Lotus share the most series nominations with three a piece. Succession was recognized for Best Drama Series and for its Australian lead Sarah Snook, as well as Jeremy Strong; The White Lotus is up for Best Comedy Series and Australian lead Murray Bartlett, and Jennifer Coolidge.

Other Australians recognized include Nicole Kidman with two nominations, for Best Actress in Film for her portrayal of Lucille Ball in Being The Ricardos, and Best Actress in a Series for her work in Nine Perfect Strangers. Kodi Smit-McPhee received a nomination for his performance in The Power of the Dog, as did Cate Blanchett for her work on Don’t Look Up. Shaun Grant and Justin Kurzel received mentions for their work on Nitram — which recently dominated AACTA’s Australian awards.

AACTA CEO Damian Trewhella said, “It’s hugely encouraging to see so many Australians nominated, and feature on the international stage. We wish them the very best of luck along with all the nominees, and look forward to seeing the results early in the new year.”
