The first Australian film nominated for an Academy Award ('Oscar') won - Kokoda Front Line! in 1942.

Since then, Australian productions and co-productions have been nominated in virtually every category - from Best Picture to Costume Design, Documentary Feature to Animated Short (all except Original Song).

In this collection you can view clips from Australian films nominated for Academy Awards from the 1940s to today, and learn more about some of our Oscar-winning artists and craftspeople.

Australian actors are more frequently Oscar-nominated for their Hollywood films - you can see some of their early Australian work in our Before They Were Famous curated collection.
