AUSSIES’ TIME TO SHINE

The Courier-Mail - - CONFIDENTIAL -

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.
