In addition to Best Film and Member's Choice Award, Animal Kingdom (which grossed just under $1 million at the U.S. box office and scored 96% on the Tomatometer) will compete for Best Director, Screenplay, Editing, Cinematography, Sound, Score, Production Design, Costume Design, Lead Actor (both James Frecheville and Ben Mendelsohn), Lead Actress (Jacki Weaver, who goes against Bright Star's Abbie Cornish), Supporting Actor (both Joel Edgerton and Guy Pearce), and Supporting Actress (Laura Wheelwright).

Stateside, Weaver is considered a strong Oscar contender for best supporting actress.
