'Australia' wins box office achievement award
There were few surprises at Australia’s 11th Inside Film Awards on Tuesday with “Samson and Delilah” scooping six wins.
Helmer Warwick Thornton’s indigenous love story, which also picked up the Camera d’Or at Cannes in May, won for film and Thornton’s script, plus actor and actress for relative newcomers Rowan McNamara and Marissa Gibson.
B.O. award went to Baz Luhrmann, G. Mac Brown and Catherine Knapman for “Australia,” which cumed $A37.5 million ($35 million). Luhrmann also took home the Living Legend award.
