Down Un­der in the Hills

The Advertiser - - CONFIDENTIAL -

OUR su­per­stars of the small screen were out in force for the Aus­tralian Emmy Nom­i­nees Sun­set Re­cep­tion in Bev­erly Hills, Cal­i­for­nia, in the lead up to to­day’s 69th An­nual Emmy awards. That said, Ni­cole Kid­man, the favourite to win the Out­stand­ing Lead Ac­tress Emmy for her role in Big Lit­tle Lies, was nowhere to be seen. But the Fox­tel drama, which is up for 16 awards, was well rep­re­sented. Ade­laide-born ex­ec­u­tive co-pro­ducer Bruna Pa­pan­drea and Liane Mo­ri­arty, the author of the book on which the minis­eries is based, were both present. “I was ner­vous, but in a way I knew I was hand­ing it over to such tal­ented peo­ple,” Liane says.

Among the guests was Ade­laide cos­tume de­signer Perry Meek, who has al­ready won an Emmy for his work on an episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Storm Boy’s Ge­of­frey Rush, who is up for Out­stand­ing Lead Ac­tor for his por­trayal of Al­bert Ein­stein in Ge­nius and Gra­cie Otto were also there, along with Ruby Rose and her lead­ing lady Jes­sica Origliasso. They ap­peared very well suited in matchy-matchy black and white out­fits. SEE: THE 69TH AN­NUAL EMMY AWARDS 9.30AM & 8PM, FOX8
