Rob Will Attend 'Australians in Film' Awards & Benefit Dinner in LA Next Week - October 24th


Australia will flex its Hollywood muscle in Los Angeles next week, with Baz Luhrmann, Jacki Weaver, Joel Edgerton and Alex O'Loughlin among the list of Aussies to be honoured at a benefit dinner in Los Angeles.

The dinner, organised by LA-based non-profit Australians in Film, will also include plenty big name non-Aussies, headed by Twilight heart-throb Robert Pattinson, Oscar-nominated director David O. Russell and Matrix duo Andy and Lana Wachowski who will present awards.

Luhrmann and Edgerton's Blue-Tongue Films collective will receive the Fox Studios Australia-sponsored Orry-Kelly International Award, named after Australia's most prolific Oscar-winning costume designer, who won three Academy Awards in the 1950s for An American in Paris, Les Girls and Some Like It Hot.

Weaver, who became hot property in Hollywood with her 2010 performance in the Blue-Tongue crime drama Animal Kingdom, and Hawaii Five-O star O'Loughlin, will receive Breakthrough Awards.

Australia's touted next big thing actor, Sullivan Stapleton, who stars in the upcoming 300 sequel, 300: Rise of an Empire and had a role opposite Sean Penn in Gangster Squad, will also receive a Breakthrough Award.

The AusFilm international award will be presented to Warner Bros president of worldwide production Steve Papazian.

The annual benefit dinner, to be held at LA's InterContinental hotel next Thursday (October 24), will support Australians in Film's mission to usher Australian filmmakers into the international market and provide educational programs for the organisation's members.
