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