AFI AWARDS 2006 – WINNERS

TEN CANOES, SEVEN AWARDS, NO TROUBLE
For all the popular fuss over Kenny and its star Shane Jacobson (Best Actor), the 2006 AFI Awards are owned by Ten Canoes and its makers who between them collected seven awards including Best Film and Best Director, and the Byron Kennedy Award for director Rolf de Heer.

Hunt Angels, directed by Alec Morgan, starring Ben Mendelsohn and Victoria Hill, won three Awards: Best Documentary as well as Best Cinematography and Visual Effects; and Susie Porter won both the awards for which she was nominated - Best Actress TV Drama for RAN, and Best Supporting Actress in a Feature, for The Caterpillar Wish.

The other multiple award winners were Suburban Mayhem, which won Emily Barclay the Best Actress Award and Anthony Hayes the Support Actor award as well as Original Score by Mick Harvey; and Macbeth, which won for Production and Costume Design. Heath Ledger also took home two AFI Awards: the International Award for Brokeback Mountain and the Readers’ Choice Award.

The Longford Life Achievement Award was awarded to TV writer Ian Jones.
