Awards and Nominations Berlin Syndrome Movies

Many congratulations to Teresa for securing a much-deserved nomination (Best Lead Actress) for her incredible performance in Berlin Syndrome! The film is nominated in seven other categories including Best Film, Best Direction, and Best Editing. You can view the full list of nominations here.

DEADLINE – The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts has set its nominations for Oz’s highest honors in both fields. Leading the pack of AACTA Awards nominees is Lion, the 2016 Garth Davis-directed drama that scored six Oscar nominations earlier this year, including Best Picture. While this is a film that The Weinstein Co acquired in a $12M 2014 Cannes deal, and which was championed by Harvey Weinstein throughout last awards season, it was produced by UK-Australia banner See-Saw Films. In the Cannes deal, TWC had taken world rights excluding Australia and New Zealand where Transmission released in January of this year.

The film is up for 12 AACTA Awards including Best Picture for producers Iain Canning, Emile Sherman and Angie Fielder of See-Saw. Due to the release calendar, Lion actually already won two AACTA International Awards in January, one each in the Supporting categories for Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman. Both repeat with the same nominations on the Oz Academy’s home turf.

Kidman is also recognized for Top Of The Lake: China Girl — another See-Saw production which shares the distinction of being the most-nominated drama, alongside Toni Collette-starrer Blue Murder: Killer Cop, with 11 mentions each.

Elisabeth Moss too received a mention for the Top Of The Lake sequel as did director Jane Campion (see the full list of nominees below).

When Lion opened in Oz in January, it scored the biggest launch ever for an Australian indie. The film is written by Luke Davies and based on Saroo Brierley’s memoir of being lost as a child in Calcutta, his adoption by an Australian couple and his search for his biological family.

The film is co-financed by Screen Australia and was a reteam for See-Saw and TWC after 2010’s Best Picture Oscar winner The King’s Speech. The Weinstein Co has U.S. distribution rights on See-Saw’s Mary Magdalene, also directed by Garth Davis. Speculation following the recent sexual harassment and assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein and the uncertain future of TWC, is that the film ends up with another domestic distributor.

Winners of the AACTA Awards will be announced across two major events in Sydney. The Industry Luncheon takes place on December 4, and the AACTA Awards Ceremony will be held on December 6.

Here’s a beautiful new portrait of Teresa showing her support for the ongoing postal vote in Australia to legalize same-sex marriage.

ELLE AUSTRALIA – Starting from the 12th of September, and running all the way to the 7th of November, Australia is conducting one of the most important, and most highly-contested votes in its history: a postal vote to legalise same-sex marriage.

After a frustrating back-and-forth regarding plebiscites and impassioned floor speeches, Australian’s government decided that a postal survey—a non-compulsory, mail-in vote—would decide whether or not a private member’s bill would be introduced on the topic (which would legalise same-sex marriage, if passed, which it is expected to). The ballots have been mailed out, and every registered Aussie is being asked the very same question, one at a time, “Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?”

But despite the simplicity of the question, and the same simplicity in your choice of answers—“Yes,” or “No”—the vote isn’t so straightforward as we’d hoped it would be.

Movies Ride Like a Girl

HERALD SUN – AUSSIE actor Teresa Palmer has been cast as inspirational Melbourne Cup winning jockey Michelle Payne in the movie about her historic 2015 triumph.

Ride Like a Girl is the story about Payne becoming the first female jockey to win our most coveted race on Prince of Penzance.

Sam Neill will play Payne’s father Paddy while Jacki Weaver has landed the role of Payne’s manager Joan Sadler.

The film, due for release around the Spring Carnival next year, is the feature debut for Oscar-nominated actor Rachel Griffiths.

Payne gave her endorsement to the cast and Palmer, who has appeared in Warm Bodies, the re-make of Point Break and the Mel Gibson-directed war film Hacksaw Ridge.

“Couldn’t be happier with the choice in you @teresapalmer — I loved the script, very excited for the times ahead!” Payne said.

Payne added she hoped her brother Stevie would make the cut as well.

Palmer posted on her own social media this iconic quote from Payne: “I just want to say to everyone else to ‘get stuffed’ if they think women aren’t strong enough, because we just beat the world.”

Palmer added: “Michelle was always warned she could never be a world class jockey. She was not tough enough. She was not a man. Then she won the 2015 Melbourne Cup (on Prince of Penzance), one of the most prestigious horse races in the world.”

Director Griffiths flew to Europe in May to raise money for the high budget film.

She has also been seen at Flemington doing site inspections.

Griffiths said she had been waiting years to find a story such as Payne’s.

“She’s been really wonderful, she entrusted us with it. I’m sure that would be terrifying to someone. I just keep saying to her, I want to make an absolutely beautiful movie that inspires girls for generations. Her job is to do what she loves. My job is to tell her story in a way that she’ll be proud of me for doing. She’s a beautiful girl, a wonderful person, and they’re a remarkable family.”

A Discovery of Witches Television

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – A Discovery of Witches, based on the best-selling All Souls Trilogy from Deborah Harkness, has found its Matthew and Diana.

British actor Matthew Goode, known best for his roles in period pieces like The Imitation Game and an arc on Downton Abbey, and Australian actress Teresa Palmer (Hacksaw Ridge), will headline the upcoming series from Bad Wolf Television.

Capitalizing on the trend of developing best-selling fantasy novels for television, Bad Wolf Television is producing A Discovery of Witches for the small screen. Bad Wolf is the production company of former Doctor Who producers Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner.

Harkness will also executive produce, and Kate Brooke (Mr. Selfridge, The Forsyte Saga) will head up the writing team and act as showrunner.

Tuesday’s highly-anticipated casting news is six years in the making; A Discovery of Witches debuted in 2011. Producers touted it heavily on social media, including teasing the announcement on Instagram.

British television giant Sky will air the series in the U.K., and a U.S. network will be announced in the coming weeks. The series is slated to begin shooting its first season on location in Great Britain this fall.

A Discovery of Witches follows Diana Bishop, a science historian who also just happens to be a witch with a troubling past that has led her to suppress her magical tendencies. When her research leads her to uncover a mysterious missing manuscript in Oxford’s Bodleian Library, she sets in motion a series of events that will lead her on an adventure across time and continents to discover the secrets of her past and the truth about the origin of magical beings (which includes witches, vampires, and daemons). Along the way, Diana also encounters and falls in love with Matthew Clairmont, a scientist and vampire with a murky past of his own.
