The Asian Academy Creative Awards are being announced across two nights in Singapore this week.
The Awards are being held at the AAA Theatre, the newly built 3D virtual theatre which had its first public showing. Using virtual tracking technology, the AAA’s were able to put performers and winners on the same stage despite being in different locations across the region. Host Bobby Tonelli declared it “Our industry’s Theatre of Dreams”.
In the awards announced last night, Australia won in four of the 20 categories.
Method Studio’s claimed an historic Best Visual FX “three-peat” for their work on Jumanji: The Next Level.
Emmy winner Bluey became a winner of The Double (an Emmy and a Goddess) with their victory in the Preschool category. The win for Ludo Studio comes just days after they picked up a second AACTA for Bluey.
Australia then added both documentary categories to their tally thanks to ABC’s Revelation from Sarah Ferguson and The Australian Dream, an Australian-UK co-production between GoodThing Productions and Passion Pictures, written by Stan Grant.
The Gala Awards Final takes place at the AAA Theatre on Friday evening (6pm Singapore time) when the bulk of the scripted and acting awards are decided.
