winners//6th AUSTRALIAN ACADEMY AWARDS

AWARDS COVERAGE



As part of the overall AFI Awards umbrella, the Australian Academy Awards honor screen excellence in Australia, similar to the Oscars or BAFTAs. Many of the award recipients may not make it into the Oscar conversation, but there's generally a film or two that can bounce off of these awards into the overall discussion.

This year's film is Hacksaw Ridge, the Mel Gibson-directed war film that all but swept the 6th Australian Academy Awards, including wins for Best Feature Film, Director, and Actor (Andrew Garfield).

The awards were given out at a ceremony at The Star Event Centre in Sydney on December 7, 2016.
