“Three Billboards” topped “Call Me By Your Name,” “Dunkirk,” “Lady Bird,” and “The Shape of Water.” The dark comedy also won best screenplay for writer-director Martin McDonagh and best supporting actor for Sam Rockwell.

The AACTA International Awards were presented Friday night at a ceremony held at The Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles. The awards are determined by the AACTA International Chapter, made up of 150 Australian screen professionals.

Australian actress Margot Robbie won the best lead actress award for “I, Tonya” and co-star Allison Janney won the supporting actress award. Gary Oldman won the best lead actor award for his portrayal of Winston Chruchill in “Darkest Hour.” Christopher Nolan won the best director award for “Dunkirk.”

Oldman and Rockwell attended the ceremonies along with Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Abbie Cornish, Samara Weaving and Radha Mitchell. Presenters included host Hugh Sheridan, Jai Courtney, Josh Lawson, Mallory Jansen, Liam McIntyre, Daniel MacPherson, Josh Thomas and this year’s AACTA Longford Lyell recipient Phillip Noyce.

Damian Trewhella, CEO of the Australian Film Institute and AACTA, said, “On behalf of the Australian Academy, I congratulate all our winners tonight. We have again seen a dynamimix of international and Australian screen achievement honored, celebrating some of the world’s biggest names in film, including Australian actress Margot Robbie who we’re very proud to count among tonight’s winners.”

“The AACTA International Awards add a uniquely Australian voice to the global discussion of screen excellence, and have become an early forecaster of which performers, practitioners and productions will be recognized during the awards season,” he added.
