Red Dog had been up against fellow Best Feature Film nominees The Eye of the Storm, Oranges and Sunshine and Face to Face in the Best Actor and Best Actress categories as well. Oranges and Sunshine picked up Best Actress (Emily Watson) as well as Best Production Design. The Eye of the Storm went home empty-handed.
Eyebrows were raised when critically-acclaimed Snowtown was shut out of the acting in its five nominations. It won for Best Editing (Veronika Jenet).
The Jameson IF Awards are the people’s choice awards for Australian films and created in 1999 by IF Media. Votes are tallied from audiences attending one or more of the 20 major film festivals and cinema screenings, and from IF eligible DVD releases.
