Major congrats to Michelle Ang
who won the AFTA
(Aotearoa Film and Television Award) for ‘Best Lead Actress in a Feature Film’ for her role as Emily in My Wedding And Other Secrets
The 2011 AFTA’s, previously known as the Qantas Film & Television Award, was held at the Viaduct Events Centre on November 12, 2011 in Auckland, New Zealand.
I am not 100% certain if Michelle Ang was in attendance to pick up the award herself as I can’t seem to find any photos of her at the event. If you know if she was there or found pics, give us a shout please :)
My Wedding And Other Secrets also won the Best Screenplay for a Feature Film, awarded to Roseanne Liang & Angeline Loo. Another notable, Tribe related win, was Kaitangata Twitch which won the Best Children’s/Youth Programme award. The series starred Miriama Smith.
Here’s two pics of Antonia Prebble
with Robyn Malcolm
at the Aotearoa Film & Television Awards 2011
. It’s a mini Outrageous Fortune cast reunion!
Okay, maybe not.
The AFTA’s (formerly known as QANTA’s) was held at the Viaduct Events Centre on November 12, 2011 in Auckland, New Zealand. Antonia Prebble played Trudy in The Tribe. Robyn Malcolm played the guest role of Ma’am in series 2 of The Tribe. In Outrageous Fortune they played daughter and mother Loretta West and Cheryl West respectively.
This evening (well morning in the UK!) was the hottest awards night in New Zealand, it was the QANTAS Film and Television Awards
held at Auckland’s Civic Theatre. Check out the cool snaps above of some of our favourite cast members who have been in The Tribe! Photos are © Throng
, who gave a great commentary of the event via Twitter
Beth Allen, Lee Donoghue (Shortland Streets Dr Brooke Freeman and Hunter McKay) and Antonia Prebble (Loretta West in Outrageous Fortune) were present at the ceremony. Don’t they all just look stunning. I’m loving Beth Allen’s dress, long and flowwy. Antonia Prebble’s sparkling party frock and Lee Donoghue is looking sharp in his suit!
Unfortunately Beth Allen did not win the New Idea People’s Choice award she was nominated for (it went to Paul Henry), but hey she’s the real winner in our books! Miriama Smith (Kaitangata Twitch) also lost out in the Best Supporting Actress award she was nominated for, it went to Lisa Chappell (The Cult).
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…

Images will appear on Throng here and here in due course.
Pics from NZTV: Antonia Prebble, Miriama Smith, Lee Donoghue
From The Tribe cast… I do believe Fleur Saville is handing out an award. Antonia Prebble has so far been spotted on the red carpet. Tom Hern will be there representing the I’m Not Harry Jenson crew, who are up for two awards *fingers crossed* on some wins! I’m sure Beth Allen will also be there with the Shorty Street gang also! There’ll be plenty of pics online also in the coming day.
PS… I’m on Twitter here!
I’m Not Harry Jenson sadly lost out on the award for Best Feature Film with a budget of less than $1 million.
The last lot of Ella Wilks’ photos from The Tribe cast reunion went up last night, click here to check them all out, the newer ones are at the bottom of the page. The new pics feature Ashwath Sundarasen (Dal), Ella (Danni), Sarah Major (Patsy), Dwayne Cameron (Bray), Antonia Prebble (Trudy), Nick Miller (Pride), Jennyfer Jewell (Ellie), Michael Wesley Smith (Jack) and Beth Allen (Amber).
The pics of Ella, Victoria and Antonia are great. Also check out the funny one with Antonia’s ‘bunny ears’ as well as the candid one featuring MWS, Beth Allen and others. I think they were taken towards the end of the evening as they have their coats on, I’m not certain though…
According to NZHerald gossiper Rachel Glucina, on the Qantas Awards, “It wasn’t a good night for Shorty St’s Fleur Saville who rocked some bizarre cloth headband that looked more Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan”.
I found a scanning of her outfit and atached it to the post. I don’t know much ’bout fashion, but she looks alright to me. But then The Tribe’s Ruby has always been a fave. You go girl!
Fleur Saville plays Libby Jeffries in Shortland Street.
Antonia Prebble won the Qantas award for ‘best supporting actress’, for her role in ‘Outrageous Fortune’. For more info and pictures of her, check out antoniaprebble.org. The cermony was held in Auckland, New Zealand.
Antonia Prebble wasn’t the only tribette there, Miriama Smith (Moz in The Tribe) wowed the punters with her frock. She’s the one pictured on the right! Image from www.zimbio.com
