2018 Australian International Academy Awards: Full list of winners led by ‘Three Billboards,’ ‘I, Tonya’

The seventh annual Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) International Awards was held at The Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles on Friday, Jan. 5th, 2018. Leading Oscar contender “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” won three of its five bids, including Best Picture. Despite having five nominations each, “Call Me By Your Name” and “Lady Bird” were shut out of these kudos as was three-time contender “The Shape of Water.” (Read our report on the full results.)

Winners were decided by approximately 150 Australians who work in the film industry, either at home or in Hollywood. About half of these are voters for the Academy Awards and BAFTAs, with some also holding membership in the various guilds that bestow precursor prizes.

Last year, “La La Land” claimed the Best Picture prize here while the eventual Oscar “Moonlight” did not even contend. However, it did preview the Oscar wins for “La La” leading lady Emma Stone, as well as the two by”Manchester by the Sea” for leading man Casey Affleck and screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan. The latter lost the directing race to Mel Gibson, whose comeback picture “Hacksaw Ridge” had swept the domestic Australian Academy Awards by winning nine prizes. That home-grown bias also saw the International Awards for supporting performances go to “Lion” co-stars Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel over, among others, the eventual Oscar winners Viola Davis (“Fences”) and Mahershala Ali (“Moonlight”).
