The Sapphires

The 2nd Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Awards were dominated by The Sapphires, which won five of a possible six AACTA Awards: Best Cinematography (Warwick Thornton), Best Editing (Dany Cooper ASE), Best Production Design (Melinda Doring – who also won this Award last year for The Eye of the Storm), Best Costume Design (Tess Schofield) and Best Sound (Andrew Plain, Bry Jones, Pete Smith, Ben Osmo, John Simpson).

And in Los Angeles, Silver Linings Playbook was the big winner at the AACTA International Awards, winning Best Film; Best Direction for David O. Russell; and Best Lead Actress for Jennifer Lawrence.

The offbeat comic drama sees Lawrence playing a reckless young widow who befriends a bipolar schoolteacher (Bradley Cooper) who is obsessing about his ex-wife. Rounding out the film’s stellar cast are Robert De Niro,Jacki Weaver and Chris Tucker.
