It’s been a year the inventors of television could only dream of – a trapped audience, mostly stuck at home, watching an endless stream of television broadcast from dozens of different platforms.

The Nod of Prison Drama Wentworth is almost the most nominated show in awards history.

But now that you’ve finished The Queen’s Gambit / The Crown / all seven seasons of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, what’s next?

Luckily, the AACTA Awards (formerly AFI Awards) are here, and tonight the TV and movie gongs showing Australia’s best productions are being handed out to fill that screen-shaped void in your life.

The above magical botanicals are part of the science fiction flower (Stan), in which a flora with remarkable powers emerges after a deadly flood.

Bloom and the still going strong prison drama Wentworth (Foxtel) are the only shows that were also nominated for best drama series category last year – in fact, this is Wentworth’s sixth nomination for best drama series (with only one win to date).

Ivan Sen’s indigenous detective series Mystery Road (ABC) is back in the running again this year after winning that award in 2018. The second season switches from the outback to the mangroves.

The newcomers to this category are the ongoing adventures of a hedonistic medic exiled to the country in Doctor Doctor (Nine), Halifax: Retribution (Nine) with comeback queen Rebecca Gibney as forensic psychiatrist Jane Halifax and multicultural social housing Crucible of Heights (ABC).

There is something for everyone in this category, especially if you like your stories short, sharp, and satisfying.

Did you see the Scandinavian noir of a lockdown during the pandemic? Perhaps you should check out The Gloaming (Stan), in which the Mists of Tasmania are the backdrop to murder, as envisioned by one of the creators of The Kettering Incident, which won that category in 2016.

No more American Horror Story seasons? Check out Hungry Ghosts (SBS), a four-part series immersed in Vietnamese mythology in which four families are haunted by a group of unhappy ghosts.

Do you prefer a shot of dark comedy to your drama? How about Operation Buffalo (ABC), where the Maralinga nuclear tests provide us with the historical framework for all kinds of bad behavior.

Gone up hoping for new episodes of Big Little Lies? The Secrets She Keeps (Ten) is a psychological thriller about two women whose lives are unintentionally linked by a dark past.

Do you need a known star power on your next binge? Stateless (ABC) at an immigration center with Cate Blanchett, Yvonne Strahovski, Asher Keddie, Dominic West and Jai Courtney.

The fun stuff has been split into two categories this year for reasons that are unclear, although it will mean more recognition for our nation’s comedic talents.

Rosehaven (ABC) and Black Comedy (ABC) are likely the sentimental favorites for the best comedy series as this is their fourth and fourth edition, respectively. third nomination in this category is for no wins.

The Lockdown-inspired At Home Alone Together (ABC), Matt Okines The Other Guy (Stan), and the unlikely story of a piano, Upright (Foxtel) will try to piss off the veterans.

In the newly created comedy entertainment category is Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell (ABC), which has a win out of four nominations for the best comedy series category.

There will be a number of stand-up heavy shows and specials – Australian Amazon Original Stand-up Specials (Amazon Prime), Australian Lockdown Comedy Festival (Stan) and LOL: Last One Laughing Australia (Amazon Prime), with the local version of Drunk History (Ten) rounding out the list.

Stateless has six actors nominated in the four acting categories (Lead Actor and Lead Actor and Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress) – and that goes for Mystery Road as well.

Bloom has four nominations, with the rest of the nods spread across just a few other shows – Operation Buffalo, Wentworth, Halifax: Retribution and the quasi-futuristic drama The Commons (Stan).

In the comedy performer section, where there are no gender differences, Tim Minchin and Milly Alcock from Upright compete against the Rosehaven couple Luke McGregor and Celia Pacquola. Anne Edmonds, star of At Home Alone Together (and youngest ARIA winner) category.

Most of the remaining TV nominations are non-bingable and split into a confusing set of categories.

For example, The Voice (Nine) is nominated for best entertainment rather than best reality, while Gogglebox (Ten / Foxtel) is nominated for best factual entertainment and competes against the likes of The Project (Ten). .

Winners from the TV and Film categories will be announced today. So stop by here for coverage. You must, however, by Sunday the 6th. December, sit to watch the awards ceremony at Foxtel Arts.
