The Qantas Film & Television Awards are one of the biggest ceremonies honouring the New Zealand film industry. This year from The Tribe cast alumni we follow Miriama Smith and Beth Allen have both received nominations.
Miriama has been nominated for ‘Best Performance by a Supporting Actress’ for her role as Grace Gallagher in Kaitangata Twitch, which was broadcast on Maori TV.
I’m suprised she did not receive a nomination for her role in the controversial TV movie Stolen : The Baby Kahu Story, which she was fantastic in, but I’m guessing it’s because it was broadcast after/near the deadline of nomination dates.
Beth has received a nomination in the ‘New Idea People’s Choice’ category. The winner of this award will be chosen by the people of New Zealand. Beth has been nominated for her role as Dr. Brooke Freeman in Shortland Street.
If you live in New Zealand please do vote for Beth by texting A to 4369 (texts cost 20 cents each). That’s A for Awesome Allen! Beth is up against Robyn Malcolm in this category. Robyn Malcolm is fabulous but we don’t want Lex’s bootcamp leader Ma’am to win, we want Beth to win! ;D
The winners will be announced at the award ceremony at the Civic Theatre in Auckland on Saturday 18 September. We wish them both the best of luck. Well whoever wins, no matter what, it all comes down to what you wear on the night. Choose those frocks wisely ladies! Continue reading…
