‘A Star Is Born,’ ‘Vice’ Lead 2018 Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Nominees

The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) announced their nominees for the 8th annual AACTA International Awards on Tuesday. “A Star Is Born” and “Vice” lead the pack, with five and four nominations respectively.

The two leading films compete with “BlacKkKlansman,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and “Roma” for best film, while Nicole Kidman becomes the first actor in AACTA Awards history to be nominated in both the lead and supporting actor or actress categories for “Destroyer” and “Boy Erased.” Kidman won the award for supporting actress last year for “Lion.”

The AACTA International Awards follow the main AACTA Awards, which honor Australian film and TV content, and local talent, and which were announced earlier this month. “The AACTA International Awards give Australian filmmakers the opportunity to participate in and add their uniquely Australian perspective to the global conversation of screen excellence,” said AFI and AACTA CEO Damian Trewhella. “This year’s nominees truly represent international filmmaking excellence, and we are very proud to see many of our talented Australian practitioners and performers among these nominees. I congratulate all our nominees and wish them every success during the upcoming awards season.”

Winners will be announced in Los Angeles on Friday, Jan. 4 at a ceremony held at the Mondrian Hotel.
