Over three quarters of nominees receive their first AACTA nominations, including: Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird), Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Allison Janney (I, Tonya), Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour), Frances McDormand (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Willem Dafoe (The Florida Project) and Australian actress Margot Robbie, who follows her first Golden Globe nomination with her first AACTA International Award nomination for Best Lead Actress for I, Tonya.

“Now in our seventh year, we are delighted to continue celebrating international excellence within the film industry, honouring the world’s best performers, practitioners and productions,” said AACTA CEO Damian Trewhella. “It’s great to see our International Chapter members adding their uniquely Australian perspective to the conversations, with a number of nominations for Australians who have excelled on the world stage. We are very proud to count these Australian filmmakers among our nominees and I congratulate all the nominees and wish them every success during the upcoming Awards season.”
