Aussies take L.A.!

Stars like Hannah Gadsby, Lara and Sam Worthington, Jonathan LaPaglia and more turned out for the 7th Annual Australians in Film Awards gala on October 24.

The ceremony, held at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, began with a surprise performance from rapper Briggs and was hosted by Anchorman 2's Josh Lawson.

Monica Lewinsky presented Nanette comedian Hannah Gadsby with the Create NSW Annette Kellerman Award, honouring her impact on the entertainment industry.

"I expected the show to peel me off into the margins by telling my truth so brutally, but I have been so overwhelmed by how positively the show has been received and how connected I am to the world in a way that I never knew how honestly disconnected I was," Gadsby said in her speech, adding, "I am currently working on a film version of Nanette. Damon [Herriman] is playing Nanette, I am hoping Cate Blanchett will play me."

Love, Simon and The Flash star Keiynan Lonsdale and Sharp Objects' Eliza Scanlen took home the Screen Breakthrough Award.

While Scanlen's Sharp Objects co-star Amy Adams was originally scheduled to present her award, Scanlen is currently busy shooting Little Women (which co-stars Timothée Chalamet, Emma Watson and Saoirse Ronan) and neither star attended the event.
