WINNERS LIST: AACTA Awards 2013

aacta award winners

The Sapphires dominated the the 2nd annual Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Awards awards last night, Australia’s very own bombastic, self-congratulatory award ceremony for the film and TV people of the country. I would complain and be snide about how stupid such a tradition is but to be honest, I love these things like crazy, its ridiculous, bombastic and famous people actually come, oh and at least it isn’t the fucking Logies.
