Don’t miss your chance to de­cide a key cat­e­gory at the AACTA Awards

Herald Sun - Switched On - - On The Couch -

WHAT was the most mem­o­rable screen moment of 2012? Was it blind, 17-year-old Rachael Leah­car’s spine-tin­gling per­for­mance of La Vie En Rose dur­ing au­di­tions for The Voice? The scene in Un­der­ground in which Ju­lian (Alex Wil­liams) taunts De­tec­tive Roberts (An­thony LaPaglia) over the in­ter­net by mak­ing all the phones in his of­fice ring at once?

Or per­haps it was the key moment in big screen mu­si­cal The Sap­phires when Dave Lovelace (ChrisO’Dowd) pas­sion­ately de­scribed the power of soul mu­sic to the in­dige­nous singers he’d go on to man­age?

We’re leav­ing it up to you to de­cide, with vot­ing now open for the news.com.au Au­di­ence Choice Award for Most Mem­o­rable Screen Moment, to be pre­sented at the sec­ond AACTA Awards.

There are 20 mem­o­rable mo­ments short­listed, put for­ward by the pro­duc­ers of each of the AACTA Award nom­i­nees for Best Re­al­ity Tele­vi­sion Se­ries, Best Tele­vi­sion Drama Se­ries, Best Tele­fea­ture or Mini Se­ries, Best Film and from four of the next-high­est gross­ing Aussie films of the year.

One lucky voter will also win a trip to the AACTA Awards, in­clud­ing re­turn flights, ac­com­mo­da­tion and the chance to rub shoul­ders with the rich and fa­mous at the of­fi­cial af­ter party.

AFI/AACTA CEO Damian Trewhella says Aus­tralian drama and re­al­ity pro­duc­tions dom­i­nated the rat­ings last year and films such as The Sap­phires also proved to be crit­i­cal and com­mer­cial suc­cesses.

‘‘ There­fore this year’s AACTA Awards show will cel­e­brate the film and tele­vi­sion mo­ments that have cap­tured the na­tion’s imag­i­na­tion over the last year,’’ Trewhella says.

The film and tele­vi­sion in­dus­try’s night of nights will be hosted by Hugh Sheri­dan and in­clude out­stand­ing live per­for­mances and plenty of com­edy to en­ter­tain view­ers at home.
