I think the list of nominees this year is great and they definitely deserve to be recognised. There are a few films on the list that haven’t been released in Australia yet and it will be interested to see whether or not the nomination will create a higher expectation for the particular film.

 

To conclude, I’m excited to see Tarantino and Spielberg still going strong with their filmmaking and there seems to be no clear winner in most of the categories. Are any of your favourites nominated?



Stacey's favourite films include: Titanic (1997), Cast Away (2000), Moulin Rouge (2001), The Notebook (2004), Kill Bill vol.1 and 2 (2003, 2004), Ruby Sparks (2012) and the list goes on.
