The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) announced the nominees for the 3rd AACTA International Awards and it was David O. Russell’s American Hustle that captured the most nominations. 12 Years a Slave earned the second most nominations followed by Captain Phillips and Gravity.
 
American Hustle was the only film to earn a nomination in each of the seven official categories.
 
“Australian performers and practitioners are consistently acknowledged as among the world’s best screen talent by international screen organisations such as AMPAS and BAFTA,” said AACTA CEO Damian Trewhella. “It is vital that the Australian screen industry participates in this global conversation and has an opportunity to recognise the talents of both local and international peers through the Australian Academy’s International Awards.”
 
“Each year our AACTA International Chapter votes to award the season’s most accomplished performers and practitioners and, as always, it’s fascinating to observe the consensus and the distinction amongst the perspectives of the Australian screen industry and that of their international counterparts,” added Trewhella.
 
Winners will be announced at the 3rd AACTA International Awards to be held on January 10, 2014 in Los Angeles.
