Ruby Rose, Sarah Snook, Dacre Montgomery, Anthony Maras and Bill Draper are among those who will be honoured at the 2019 Australians in Film (AiF) Awards, to be held in La in October.
Rose, who plays the lead CW’s upcoming series Batwoman, will be presented with the Create Nsw Annette Kellerman Award, which recognises a screen industry figure who has been a trailblazer for Australian women. Previous winners of the award, introduced in 2016, include Hannah Gadsby, Kate Dennis and Rebel Wilson.
Rose said: “I am so proud to receive this award. As an Australian woman who also had to carve her own path to get to where I am today, I can only imagine the barriers Annette Kellerman had to break to accomplish what she did. Thank you to AiF for this incredible honor.”
Actors Snook and Montgomery and director Maras will each be honoured with the Screen Australian Breakthrough Award,
