Leonardo DiCaprio in 'The Great Gatsby'

"The Great Gatsby" was the life of the party at the Australian Academy Awards, winning in six of its seven nominated categories, including Best Film, Director and Best Actor (Leonardo DiCaprio). Plus, the show featured a razzle-dazzle closing number that paid tribute to director Baz Luhrmann's "Strictly Ballroom," "Moulin Rouge," "Romeo and Juliet" and "Gatsby."

Actress Elizabeth Debicki also scored a Supporting Nod, as did Joel Edgerton, while the film's script nabbed Best Adapted Screenplay. 

Meanwhile, Kim Mordaunt's Aussie Oscar entry (for the stateside Foreign Language competition) "The Rocket" took home Best Original Screenplay.

Also of note, Kiwi auteur Jane Campion's mystery "Top of the Lake," starring Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss, won Best Mini-Series. The full list of winners is here.
