WINNERS ANNOUNCED, 2010 QANTAS FILM AND TELEVISION AWARDS

The winners of the 2010 Qantas Film and Television Awards were announced tonight during a star-studded Awards Gala at The Civic in Auckland.

It was a close call in the hotly contested News and Current Affairs categories, with One News winning four awards, including Qantas Best News and Journalist of the Year for Paul Hobbs, and Campbell Live winning three, including Best News or Current Affairs Presenter for John Campbell.

Across the Film categories, Boy lived up to its box office success by winning seven awards, including Qantas Best Film. Taika Waititi took home an unprecedented trifecta, winning Best Director, Best Supporting Actor and Best Screenplay for Boy, his second feature film.

The debut season of TV2’s The Cult also made a strong impact in General Television, picking up awards for acting, design, music, editing and cinematography.

48 Hours winner Only Son lead the Short Film pack, while Documentary titles This Way of Life and Lost In Wonderland also won multiple accolades.

“While the New Zealand film and television industries, like many other sectors, have faced some challenges over the past year, the standard of work produced has not been compromised,” said Anna Cahill, Awards committee co-chair and Executive Director of the Screen Director’s Guild of New Zealand. “There is no shortage of talent in our industries and it is an honour to be able to bring together the best of the best to recognise their great work at the 2010 Qantas Film and Television Awards. Award winners now carry with them not only a trophy, but also recognition from their peers that they are at the top of their game.”

Rick Friesen, Awards committee co-chair and New Zealand Television Broadcasters’ Council chief executive, added that the Awards had become the calendar highlight for the film and television industries. “The Qantas Film and Television Awards provide the opportunity for our industries to step back, assess the year’s work and celebrate best practise. Every year, the bar gets set higher, but the work being produced continues to exceed expectations.”

The Awards Gala concluded with a 42BELOW After Party celebration at the Auckland Town Hall.

Highlights from the Awards Gala ceremony will screen at 10:45pm tomorrow night on TV One.
