AUSSIES’ TIME TO SHINE
AUSTRALIAAUS is well represented at the Primetime Emmy Awards and the Aussie hopefuls ( below) have all been out supporting each other.
While Nicole Kidman has been stealing the limelight, other Aussies to hit the red carpet for the awards curtainraiser, the Australian Emmy Nominees Sunset Reception in LA on Saturday, included Kate Dennis, for directing The Handmaid’s Tale,
Geoffrey Rush, and Big Little Lies executive producer Bruna Papandrea.
“I think Australian creatives work very hard. We are a tough lot,” Dennis said. “You feel like you’re on this crazy life raft together.”
Rush added: “There’s an energy that says, let’s not let it happen again that we are moribund and defunct, so we go into battle on many levels.”
Also in attendance were costume designer Perry Meek, Orange is the New Black’s Ruby Rose with girlfriend
Jessica Origliasso (pictured right), and Big Little Lies author Liane Moriarty.
