Animal Kingdom, a perfect 10 at AFI Awards

11 December 2010 5:29 PM, PST | Encore Magazine | See recent Encore Magazine news »

It was a night of success for Animal Kingdom at last night’s 2010 Samsung AFI Awards; the event’s final year in Melbourne before moving to Sydney went out with the blast of a shotgun as the tale of Melbourne’s underworld criminals won 10 prizes. Glenn Dunks reports.

David Michôd’s film won every major category except Best Supporting Actress, which went to Deborah Mailman for musical Bran Nue Dae. Stuart Beattie took home the statue for Best Adapted Screenplay for his work on Tomorrow, When the War Began, and mentioned he has recently started writing the sequel. Hollywood stars Sam Worthington and Mia Wasikowksa took home the Best International Actor and Actress awards, but the biggest surprise was the win for Contact in Best Documentary.

The TV categories were dominated by Network Ten, which won awards for Rush, Hawke and Offspring (Mailman’s second award for the night), while Catherine McClements beat her co-star, »

Animal Kingdom To Rack Up Awards (...In Australia)

28 October 2010 6:48 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Remember that one year (2001) when the list-happy AFI (American Film Institute) decided to compete with the Globes and the Oscars in year end prizes? No, that didn't last long. But there's another AFI, The Australian Film Institute, that has been around for a long time and is in no such danger of being a one-off. This year, they're all about the amazing family crime drama Animal Kingdom which they awarded with a record breaking 18 nominations. Sure, the film is in danger of being way overhyped for people who are coming to it late (which is just about everyone given the sorry state of international distribution for dramas of virtually any kind) but for those who can slough off the "omg" raves, I guarantee you'll think it at least an insinuating and well executed crime drama.

Kat Stewart no bitch in Tangle

15 July 2010 10:21 PM, PDT | TV.com | See recent TV.com news »

Her role as Nat Manning in Pay TV's hit drama may be narcissistic, but deep down she has a softer side.

Most actresses relish the opportunity to play a television bitch, but Kat Stewart says her role as Nat Manning in Tangle is no bitch.

"I don't see that at all. I think she's quite a damaged person and she's very self absorbed. But it's not malicious; she's just in the moment. With Max (Blake Davis), her son, she left him to his own devices for 10 years but she came back and she's completely there," says...  More >> »

Tangle resolves cliffhanger

23 June 2010 4:59 PM, PDT | TV.com | See recent TV.com news »

Pay TV drama will answer the question: did Vince live or die?

One of Pay TV's biggest dramatic questions will be resolved with the return of Showcase's Aussie-made drama Tangle next month.

Viewers were left hanging with the question: did Vince (Ben Mendelsohn) survive being hit by a car?

The drama returns to TV screens in July once again dissecting the urban family life of the Williams and Kovacs families. Last year viewers were drawn to its quietly imploding story lines as families dealt with relationships, conflict, lies and adolescence.

The second season again...  More >> »

Australia’s Power 50

21 June 2010 10:26 PM, PDT | Encore Magazine | See recent Encore Magazine news »

It’s been four years since Encore published its Top 20 Directors and Producers list, and we felt it was time to compile a new, more comprehensive list that included professionals working across all areas – film, television and Tvc production – as well as the leaders and decision-makers that determine the direction of the industry.

Instead of having a limited list of panellists, we consulted with the main agencies and organisations, and also asked our readers to nominate their candidates. We ended up with a list of more than 200 screen industry professionals, and deciding the final 50 was indeed a difficult task. Of course, some other very influential and successful people didn’t make the final cut, but there were only 50 spots and too many talented men and women!

We hope you’ll enjoy – or not, and if so, debate it passionately – the selection of what will become our annual Power 50 list.
