Alfonso Cuarón’s ROMA added another two Awards to its growing list of accolades, winning the top prizes for Best Film and Best Direction at the 8th AACTA International Awards. Cuarón, who won the same two awards in 2014 for GRAVITY, now holds the record for the most AACTA International Award wins by an individual (a record previously held by Alejandro G. Iñárritu with three).
