YES, AUSTRALIA DOES GIVE OUT AWARDS! WE USUALLY HEAR ABOUT THE BAFTAS, BUT THE AACTA (AUSTRALIAN ACADEMY CINEMA TELEVISION ARTS) BROADCASTS THEIRS FROM HOLLYWOOD!!!!
PRESENTED BY QUANTAS AND G'DAY USA, THE AACTA took over the Hollywood Palladium Saturday night and had a wing-ding of a party. The Hollywood Palladium was really cleaned up for the event! I love going to an awards show wherer you can sit in comfortable couches and have hors d'oeuvres AND small plates passed to you. The actual TV broadcast lasted only one hour, so afterwards we were treated to incredible food stations by Australian star chef Neil Perry, and our "own star" Tom Colicchio. each chef was actually there and it was a thrill being handed tacos directly from Tom himself.
|Nicole Kidman and Geoffrey Rush hosted the show|
|Russell Crowe was not all that amused by Rebel's comments|
|Rebel Wilson ripped Russell Crowe apart on stage and thought he wasn't in the audience. BUT, HE WAS!|
|Naomi Watts and Nicole are such close friends that Nicole called her up on the stage by saying, "Come on up, Na!"|
|Helen and I loved that couch|
|Sweet and Spicy Prawns|
|Presenter John Travolta|
