|Desc||AACTA Awards Sydney, Australia It's the hottest ticket in town - the who's who of the Australian film and television industry are here at the AACTA awards. The mega event is being held at the world famous Sydney Opera House and was broadcast via Channel 9 at 9.30pm. The 4 legged star of Red Dog, Koko, was notably absent at the red carpet of the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards - alas his film is nominated for 8 awards. The red carpet at the first-time awards ceremony at the Sydney Opera House played host to some of Australia’s most internationally acclaimed actors including Cate Blanchett, Olivia Newton-John and AACTA President, and Aussie of the Year, Geoffrey Rush. Cate Blanchett looked great in gold. Olivia Newton-John performed for the audience and wore a conservative black dress. Newton-John’s co-star in 'A Few Best Men', Xavier Samuel, who rose to international fame as Riley Biers in 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse', praised the state of the Australian film industry. “The Australian film industry is thriving. I think Red Dog is a terrific film,” he said. “The important thing is Australians are going to see Australian films.” Director of Red Dog, Kriv Stenders, also commented on the quality of current Australian films saying his movie faced strong competition from all of the nominated flicks. “What’s wonderful is it’s a year where we’ve got great films, and great filmmakers and great creative teams,” he said. “I think it’s a really good sign of the times.” He apologised for the absence of the Koko - the star of the film. “Sometimes we have to let him be a dog,” he said. Model Miranda Kerr, wife of Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom, wore silver for the night with a Collette Dinnigan gown and confided to press she had not yet seen the top nominated film of the night. “I really want to see Red Dog,” she said. “I haven’t seen it but I’m dying to see it.” The AACTA awards recognise excellence in Australian film and television. It also has an international awards section, which took place in Los Angeles on Saturday with presenters Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe and Liam Hemsworth. The Music News Australia agency congratulates everyone involved in the success of the AACTA Awards.

About Who Dares Wins
Who Dares Wins, released in 1982, is a British action thriller directed by Ian Sharp. The film is loosely based on the Iranian Embassy siege in London in 1980 and follows the story of a group of SAS soldiers who go undercover to infiltrate a terrorist organization planning a major attack.
The film features a strong cast, including Lewis Collins as the lead character, Peter Skellern as the villainous terrorist leader, and Judy Davis as the love interest. The action sequences are intense and well-executed, with a climactic finale that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats.
Who Dares Wins received mixed reviews upon its release, with some critics praising its realism and others criticizing its portrayal of the SAS. However, the film has since gained a cult following and is considered a classic of the genre.
The film's title is a reference to the motto of the SAS, "Who Dares Wins," which emphasizes the importance of taking risks and pushing oneself to the limit. This theme is reflected throughout the film, as the SAS soldiers must put their lives on the line to stop the terrorists and protect innocent lives.
Overall, Who Dares Wins is a thrilling and entertaining action film that showcases the bravery and skill of the SAS. Its legacy continues to live on, inspiring future generations of filmmakers and action enthusiasts alike.
