Diary: 2005 Australian awards season begins

It's Australian film awards season, and the announcements for nominations in the two main Australian film awards are now out.

The nominations for the Lexus IF Awards were released a couple of days ago, with the awards ceremony to be held on the 23rd of November at Luna Park in Sydney, with a live broadcast on SBS.

The nominations for the Australian Film Institute Awards are hot off the presses, and their awards ceremony will be held on the 25th and 26th of November (craft awards on the 25th at Waterfront City Pavilion, and the "real thing" on the 26th at Melbourne Central City Studios). The show will be broadcast on the 26th on Channel Nine, and is hosted by Russell Crowe, which should prove interesting, one way or another.

In the Feature Film categories, both bodies recognised Little Fish (2005), Look Both Ways (2005), and The Proposition (2005), with the AFIs chucking in an extra shout out to Oyster Farmer (2004). None of these are really a huge surprise, but this year, unlike last year, they're a little spoiled for choice, as there has actually been some great Aussie film action over the last year.

For the full list of nominations, check out IF's list and the AFI's list, and make sure you pencil those dates into your calendar so you can cheer along our local heroes, and laugh at whatever Susie Elelman wears.
