    I think that we need to start paying the ACCTA International Awards attention as we do with BAFTA. They also have a membership overlap with the academy and all of the voters work in the industry. Their overall record is spotty and there is a bias toward anything Australian, but they have been in tune with the Oscars in ways that other precursors have not been. For example, they called Michael Shannon last year, unlike SAG, BAFTA and the Globes. They nominated Morten Tyldum and Adam McKay in director after they were roundly snubbed by the critic groups, Critics’ Choice and Golden Globes (and even BAFTA for the former). They awarded Birdman, unlike the Globes, Critics’ Choice and BAFTA.

    So what do we gather from the nominations this year? First off, we need to discount the significance of nominations for anybody Australian: Craig Gillespie, Hugh Jackman, Margot Robbie, Ben Mendelsohn, Abbie Cornish and Nicole Kidman. Having said that, I like seeing Mendelsohn pick up a precursor nomination because I still have him in for the Oscars. And I like Gillespie getting some deserved recognition.

    They really liked Dunkirk, even nominating its screenplay with only five slots. Looking at past director-driven Best Picture players, AACTA nominated La La Land and snubbed both The Revenant and Gravity, all consistent with the Oscars. They also nominated Tom Hardy after snubbing him for The Revenant (and over Mark Rylance, despite actually awarding him for Bridge of Spies, unlike many other precursors). Come to think of it, I could see BAFTA nominating Hardy to make up for their snub of him in The Revenant. Remember when they awarded Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle after they did not give it to her for Silver Linings Playbook? Does Hardy get in if that happens?

    Get Out was snubbed in picture and director, yet got into the combined screenplay category and even got into actor over Denzel Washington, whom they nominated for both Fences and Flight. The Post was shut out. Maybe it was too late, but they nominated Daniel Day-Lewis for Phantom Thread.

    Lady Bird, Call Me Your Name and Three Billboards each have five nominations, but Martin McDonagh missed director. As I said above, AACTA had the prescience to nominate Morten Tyldum and Adam McKay, so this snub might be significant. They chose Armie Hammer over Michael Stuhlbarg and this is after they chose Michael Shannon over Aaron Taylor-Johnson. The Shape of Water got picture, director, screenplay and actress, but no supporting.

    From their history the past 6 year, and looking if the eventual Oscar winner was nominated there

    Picture – 5/6 (Moonlight wasn’t nominated here but showed up in supporting races)

    Director – 6/6

    Actor – 6/6

    Actress – 6/6

    Supporting Actor – 4/4

    Supporting Actres – 4/4

    Original Screenplay – 5/6 (Her wasn’t nominated at all, The Big Short was nominated only in suppprting here)

    Adapted Screenplay – 4/6 (Moonlight/Big Short wasn’t nominated for screenplay here)

    Guess the post won’t win picture or Meryl for actress lol and hopes to pull a Her at best.

    Actor – 6/6

    Actress – 6/6

    Supporting Actor – 4/4

    Supporting Actress – 4/4

    Presuming these were typos because Ejiofor and Keaton won over McConaughey and Redmayne respectively, Blanchett won over Larson in 2015, Fassbender and Patel beat Leto and Ali, and only Arquette won here as well as Oscar for Supporting Actress. Also The Artist, Gravity and Birdman were the only films to presage their directing Oscar wins with a trophy here.

    What are u talking about? I’m talking about the eventual Oscar winner just being nominated here, not the AACTA winner matching the Oscar. They all showed up here and I even wrote that on the first sentence.

    Kind of silly that they have some “international awards” just so they can get attention and get into the predictions game. They’re just repeating everybody else with a token australian included here and there. Must be such a relief when an australian is actually in the race and they don’t waste space like with Abbie Cornish. And don’t even get me started on films being rewarded for the normal awards but then also a the international ones…

    I wouldn’t really give them too much weight this year. Usually when there is a big Australian movie contending at the Oscars, AACTA are more likely to correlate well with the Academy, but when there isn’t an outstanding Australian film in the mix they just over-compensate with more Australian nominations. However they are pretty good predictors for what the Australian contingent of AMPAS votes for. Of the Australian nominees I would say Robbie is the only one that will match up with the Oscars. She’ll probably win here anyway.

    It would be great if they had TV awards as well, that way we could have had BLL and The Leftovers sweeping the nominations. Plus it would be a great industry award to have under it’s belt going into the guild season.

    A realistic group that could all repeat at the Oscars.

    @Teridax McDormand is probably still the Oscar frontrunner at this point. Robbie was amazing in I, Tonya, but I don’t know if she can beat McDormand or Hawkins at the televised awards shows. Also, I have to say that Three Billboards winning Best Film shocked me. I thought that Dunkirk had that award to Nolan’s Best Director win.
