Todd Philipps’ Joker and Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite each received four. Those titles will compete for the best film accolade alongside David Michod’s The King, which won four prizes at the AACTA Awards.

Voted on by its members, the AACTA International Awards will be handed out on January 3 in Los Angeles.

The supporting actress category is dominated by Australians with Toni Collette for Knives Out, Nicole Kidman for Bombshell and Margot Robbie for both Bombshell and Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood.

That’s the first time in AACTA International Awards history that Australians have received four of the five nominations in the same category and the first for a double nomination in the same category.

“The AACTA International Awards honour film excellence on a global scale, acknowledging international excellence within the screen industry,” said AFI | AACTA CEO Damian Trewhella.

“As always, we are thrilled to see many of our talented Australian practitioners and performers nominated for AACTA International Awards this year.”

John Lithgow is nominated for best lead actor for his performance as disgraced Fox News CEO Roger Ailes in Bombshell, which features Kidman as Gretchen Carlson and Robbie as Kayla Pospisil.

Studiocanal will release the drama directed by Jay Roach on January 16; it opens in the US on Friday.
