Winners were announced tonight for the 9th AACTA International Awards – the international counterpart to the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts’ primary awards show – with Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite scooping Best Film.

The win for Korean pic Parasite follows its triumph at the main AACTA Awards, which were held in Sydney on December 4, where it took Best Asian Film.

At today’s AACTA International ceremony in Los Angeles, Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood picked up two prizes from five nominations: Best Direction for Tarantino and Supporting Actor for Brad Pitt.

Aussie native Margot Robbie, who received a double nomination in the Supporting Actress category, won the award for her performance in Bombshell over her role as Sharon Tate in Tarantino’s Hollywood.

Elsewhere, Lead Actor went to Adam Driver for Marriage Story and Saoirse Ronan took Best Actress for Little Women, while Taika Waititi won Best Screenplay for Jojo Rabbit.

The Irishman ended the night empty handed despite its six nominations, while Joker also drew a blank from its five nods.

The AACTA International Awards are voted on by the 150 members of the Australian Academy’s International Chapter, many of which overlap with AMPAS and BAFTA.
