‘Piano’ keys 13 Oz noms

Jane Campion’s “The Piano” has dominated nominations for this year’s Australian Film Institute Awards with 13 nods, including those for best film, director, actor (Harvey Keitel) and actress (Holly Hunter).

Nominations, announced Wednesday, saw “The Piano” nominated in almost every category. Other films competing for best film are Vincent Ward’s “Map of the Human Heart,” Michael Jenkins’ “The Heartbreak Kid” and Antonio Tibaldi’s “On My Own.”

Three of those four films were also repped in the directors race; however, in Tibaldi’s place was James Ricketson, nominated for “Blackfellas” (aka “Day of the Dog”).

Awards will be held in Sydney Nov. 5. Nominated films will be screened to AFI members for judging during August and September.
