New award for Australia's rising stars

Last Cab to Darwin.s Mark Coles Smith and Looking for Grace.s Odessa Young have won the inaugural Sirius Award presented by the Casting Guild of Australia.

The annual award was created to recognise Australia.s top 10 emerging actors, modelled on the Berlin Film Festival.s Shooting Stars initiative.

Dr George Miller presented the Sirius award at the ceremony in Sydney on Monday night hosted by Sarah Snook and Ewen Leslie.
