And the Oscar goes to...
Oscars

Which nations are the real winners at the Academy Awards and which countries take out the wooden spoon?
2015 celebrates eighty-seven years of America’s arguably most awaited, discussed and prestigious acting award ceremony: The Academy Awards.
But when we are crunching the numbers of nominations throughout the years, what are we really seeing in terms of national dominance and diversity?
Nearly 1650 Actors/ Actresses have been given the honour and prestige of being nominated as best in their relevant field of acting.
Australia, in fact, happens to be the THIRD most successful country for actor/actress nominations with 30 Australians being nominated throughout the history, making up for just fewer than 2%.
Britain has held their share of nominees, coming in at second place with 17% of all nominees being British. 
So who took out first place? You guessed it! The USA, at an astounding 72% of all actors/actresses to be nominated over 87 years!

Posted by Screenwise on March 04, 2011

Getting the RIGHT Acting Training
Much has changed since Screenwise opened it’s studio doors a decade ago to plug a gaping hole in the training of Australian actors specifically for Film and TV. Previously, the only places to train in the art of acting was at NIDA or the Ensemble where ‘being an actor' meant training for the theatre via drama classes and stage productions.

Momentum: The key to a sustained journey

Posted by The Actors Pulse on August 18, 2012

Having the privilege of being able to spend time on the set of The Hobbit this year and watching Stephen Hunter in action, has to be one of the most rewarding experiences that I’ve had as an acting coach.
No matter where I go in the world, the message is universal and consistent: habit is the key.
The habit I wish to talk about is momentum. There were many factors that went into the decision to cast Stephen for his role in The Hobbit, but the thing Stephen had going for him was that he had momentum...
