FCCA AWARDS 2006 - WINNERS
Film critics award Ten Canoes and Jindabyne, and Kenny’s Shane Jaconson gets
Best Actor nod.
Rolf de Heer’s Ten Canoes has won the Best Film award for 2006 from the Film
Critics Circle of Australia and two other awards: Best Editing (Tania Nehme) and
Best Cinematography (Ian Jones), shared with Jindabyne (David Williamson).
Jindabyne also won awards for Best Director (Ray Lawrence), Best Actress –
Supporting Role (Deborra-Lee Furness) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Beatrix
Christian), making Jindabyne the most awarded by the critics, with four.
But it’s Clayton Jacobson’s Kenny winning the Best Actor award for Shane
Jacobson that is the most surprising award, considering Jacobson’s fellow
nominees are Colin Friels (Solo), Steve LeMarquand (Last Train to Freo) and
Heath Ledger (Candy). The film also won the Best Original Screenplay award for
Shane and Clayton Jacobson.
Neil Armfield’s Candy won two acting categories with Abbie Cornish for Best
Actress and Geoffrey Rush for Best Actor – Supporting Role.
Ana Kokkinos’ The Book of Revelation won the award for Best Musical Score,
composed by Cezary Skubiszewski.
Best Feature Documentary was shared between The Archive Project and Hunt Angels.
Best Short Documentary (under 60mins) went to The Balanda and the Bark Canoes
and Best Short film was awarded to Stranded.
The Best Foreign Language Film award went to Michael Haneke’s drama Caché
(Hidden) and Best Foreign Film – English Language award went to Good Night and
The Awards were announced at a gala dinner presentation at the Royal Melbourne
Yacht Club in St Kilda hosted by Adam Elliot.
The 2006 Film Critics Circle Awards are presented with the financial assistance
