AACTA, AACTA AWARDS, Andrew Anastasios, Andrew Knight, Jacqueline McKenzie, Jai Courtney, Meaghan Wilson-Anastasios, Olga Kurylenko, Russell Crowe, Universal Studios, Water Diviner, world Premier, Yilmaz Erdogan
That was quite a buzz. For those of you who are interested, here are a few iPhone photos from the red carpet in Sydney and Melbourne. Russell and Universal certainly know how to throw a party! Now it’s off to the premiere in Istanbul on Friday night. The extremely positive response of the Turkish Ambassador, His Excellency Mr Resa Keskintepe, to the film on Tuesday night bodes well for its reception in Turkey. Looking forward to it.
In other news, The Water Diviner has been nominated for eight AACTA awards, including extremely well deserved nods for Russell as lead actor, and Jacqueline McKenzie and Yilmaz Erdogan for best supporting actress and actor respectively. The outstanding work done by Tess Schofield in Costume Design and Chris Kennedy for Production Design has also been recognised. Oh, and Andrew Knight and I have been nominated in the Best Original Screenplay category.
