In celebration of the 10th year of the AACTA Awards, AACTA this year supplemented the peer-voted film and television awards with the Audience Choice Awards.
The Audience Choice Awards allowed the public to vote for their favourites from six categories covering the last ten years. Voting from a short list of nominees was held during October.
On Wednesday night, the winners were announced during AACTA’s Best of the Decade: Australia Decides telecast on the Seven Network. Out of the six award categories, Network Ten claimed three — with Offspring winning Favourite Australian TV Drama and its lead actor Asher Keddie winning Favourite TV Actor Of The Decade. Former MasterChef contestant Poh Ling Yeow won Favourite TV Contestant Of The Decade.
