Other films nominated for best film alongside Lore and The Sapphires are Burning Man and Wish You Were Here and all four best film nominees found themselves up for directing and screenwriting prizes as well as plenty of acting and technical work. Some of my personal favourite nominations of the list include Felicity Price's best lead actress nod for Wish You Were Here, the hyperdrive editing of Cindy Clarkson for X, Swerve for best sound, Sarah Snook as Australia's answer to Emma Stone in Not Suitable for Children in the lead actress category, and Gary Waddell as the bogan neighbour from hell in The King is Dead! Oh, and say what you will about the film, but I smiled at seeing Iron Sky - the nazi's on the moon sci-fi/comedy from a few months back - receive a well-deserved visual effects nomination. All of the nominations can be read over here at the AACTA website.
