Isla at the AACTA International Awards

January 8th 2017No CommentsGallery Updates, Personal, Public Events

Fresh from her recent Trailblazer honour at the AACTA Awards, Isla attended the AACTA International Awards in Los Angeles on Friday. This international version of the AACTAs is their opportunity to celebrate the best non-Australian films of the year. Isla attended with her husband, and presented the award for Best Actress to fellow red-head Emma Stone for La La Land. Emma snuck on behind Isla on stage to accept the award, and the two shouted ‘surprise’ at each other simultaneously; Isla said afterwards, “I was completed surprised, but why I said ‘surprise’ was because everyone was coming out of their seats from the audience, and Emma just came out from behind me … I really enjoyed it.” Isla was also snapped with her Aussie friend Nicole Kidman backstage. Isla looked gorgeous in a floor-length flowing yellow gown by Monique Lhuillier with jewellery by Tasaki – I love this look on her, she pulls it off perfectly! We have over 100 gorgeous HQ photos in our Gallery for you, and scroll on down this post for a couple of articles/interviews from the night…

Isla at the AACTA’s

As expected, Isla attended the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards (AACTAs) in Sydney earlier today, where she was presented with the Trailblazer Award. She was accompanied on the red carpet by her husband, and her mum Elspeth was inside for the ceremony with them. Isla was presented with her award – which she calls the “pinnacle” of her career – by Aussie actor Geoffrey Rush, and thanked fellow Aussie actresses and fellow orange person Donald Trump in her speech! Isla wore a classy black crystal polka dot dress by Aussie designer, with Bulgari jewellery.

Congratulations to Isla on this fantastic honour!

Isla Fisher takes out AACTA Trailblazer Award

AACTA has named Isla Fisher as the recipient of this year’s AACTA Trailblazer Award, designed to recognise “the achievements, abilities and successes of an Australian screen practitioner who inspires others with their portfolio of work.”

The AACTA Trailblazer Award is a discretionary award, determined by the board and president of AFI | AACTA. It was first awarded to Rose Byrne at the 4th AACTA Awards.

After her start on Home and Away, Fisher broke in the States with 2005 comedyThe Wedding Crashers. She has since gone on to star in the likes of Definitely, Maybe; Confessions of a Shopaholic; and The Brothers Grimsby alongside husband Sasha Baron Cohen. Despite being a self-described ‘comic actress’, Fisher has also appeared in The Great Gatsby and the recent Nocturnal Animals.

Outside of acting, Fisher also published two teen novels at age 18; ‘Bewitched’ and ‘Seduced by Fame’. She has also co-written two scripts with Amy Poehler and her first children’s book ‘Marge in Charge’ was released earlier this year.

CEO Damian Trewhella said Fisher’s work in the international screen industry has added to Australia’s reputation for producing outstanding screen talent.

“From her breakout roles in Home and Away and the international comedy Wedding Crashers to her critically acclaimed dramatic performances in The Great Gatsby and Nocturnal Animals, Isla has carved a diverse career we hope serves as an inspiration to other Australian performers.

We also recognise Isla’s influential role as a champion for female comic actresses – a cause she has advocated for over a decade and which marries with one of AACTA’s most important aims – to foster talented Australian screen practitioners who serve to mentor and inspire the next generation of Australians to pursue their craft to its full potential.”

Isla Fisher said: “I’m so honoured to be recognised by the Australian Academy and my Australian peers as a trailblazer in film and television. That I am considered among those Australians who are inspiring the next generation of talent is a true honour. I’m looking forward to coming back to Sydney to accept the AACTA Trailblazer Award.”

Fisher will accept the award in person this Wednesday at the AACTA Awards Ceremony held at Sydney’s Star Event Centre.

Also in attendance will be Fisher’s husband Cohen, presenters Jessica Marais, Michael Caton, Marta Dusseldorp, Shane Jacobson, and Stephen Curry alongside guests Josh Thomas and Greta Scacchi.

The AACTA Awards will be televised on Channel 7 at 8.30pm with an encore screening on Foxtel.
