Eric Bana @ AFI Awards 2007

Aussiewood star Eric Bana wins the “Best Lead Actor” award for his work in Romulus, My Father at the 2007 AFI Awards at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre on Thursday in Melbourne, Australia.

“I’m jet-lagged but very excited to be here,” the Aussie actor said as he arrived. “It is a real thrill (to be nominated). It’s a great bunch of blokes I’m up against, especially to be up against young Kodi. He’s incredible.”

Bana‘s costar Kodi Smit-McPhee (pictured) picked up the “Young Actor Award” while the movie itself won “Best Film”

    It’s great to see Eric Bana receive the recognition he deserves for his acting!

  • LH


  • Charlotte

    He and Orlando Bloom were so hot in Troy.

  • nina

    He is my favorite actor right now-he’s a gorgeous piece of man on top of it too!

  • solamia

    He has a little boy who looks like him even-a little mini me! Lawd, what’s in the water in Australia? Cause they make some fine men over there.

  • nocansay

    Jared, keep the Bana coming. This man is hot sex. His wife is even really beautiful-good for them both! Hopefully they can leak a sex tape in time for Christmas.

  • lizaloo

    Here’s what to get about Eric, LH:

    1) Best body in Hollywood(don’t believe me? Watch “Troy”)

    2) One of the finest actors in Hollywood(don’t believe me? Watch
    “Munich” or “Black Hawn Down”)

    3) One of the most grounded actors in Hollywood(this guy is married with kids and keeps his priorities intact unlike alot of the other idiots in H-wood)

    4) Great face. Not a pretty boy by any means, but rugged and handsome.

  • mouche

    lizaloo – I couldnĀ“t agree more!

  • lucia

    Eric Bana has the most beautiful, haunting eyes onscreen. Whenever they do closeups on him, I get all hypnotized by them! He conveys so much with his eyes, I think that matters alot in terms of acting. He’s just all around gorgeous and talented.

  • black

    That little boy looks like the little brother of Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

  • regular poster

    That’s one fine man with a lot of charisma to me. And he seems to have a very pleasing personality, too.

  • heyou

    Wow, what a good looking couple! I he seems like a really gracious person.

  • sarai

    He is such a hot piece!

  • Roberta

    Wow, that’s great…well done Bana!!!
    BTW, the film is awesome! And Bana is hot!!!

  • helena

    He’s dreamy.

  • Roberta

    He has the most beatiful eyes in the world!!!

  • mclovin

    This guy can do no wrong in my book. He has so much charisma and talent as an actor, he’s beautiful to look at, and he actually seems like a great guy. His wife is beautiful too.

    I want to see this movie now!

  • jamo

    He is like testosterone personified. He makes all the other guys in Hollywood look like 12 year old girls.

  • angelina_mmm

    Eric Bana grew up in Melbourne and he lives in Brighton. He really is a good bloke.

  • RA

    I’m with LH.
    I don’t get Bana either.
    Best body? Hugh Jackman
    Gorgeous / HOT / multi-talented? Hugh Jackman
    Nicest guy in Hollywood or anywhere else on earth? Hugh Jackman
    One of THE most talented actors in movies AND on stage? Hugh Jackman
    Also totally grounded and devoted to his family. Hugh Jackman

    ’nuff said

  • Roberta

    I don’t know why…but, I really love this guy!!!
    I dream about Bana almost every night!!!

  • mouche

    No surprise then that Eric Bana and Hugh Jackman are such good friends in RL lol lol!

  • estelle

    There is nothing sexier than a man is so devoted to his wife. Lucky lady. I am insanely jealous!!

  • christina

    He is such a nice guy. He is not good looking in the “classic handsome” sense but in the “gorgeous, omigosh look at him” sense. Give me Eric Bana ANY day of the year. He is a slice of heaven.

  • jess

    Freaking hot!!!!

  • bellissima

    He doesn’t try to be sexy which makes him the sexiest of all. Does he have a twin brother?

  • lovely

    ERic Bana is sexy beast! Hugh Jackman is cute too, but Bana is straight sex and manliness.

  • Roberta

    He isn’t just sexy, he seems so sweet too!

  • estelle

    #37 Roberta

    I totally agree with you..he isn’t just sexy, he seems/is so sweet too. That just makes him even more appealing.

  • lovely

    he seems like a good man and husband and papi-that’s sexy too!:)

  • Chrissie


    There’s no doubt – EB and Hugh Jackman both come across as nice, down to earth, totally NOT up themselves guys, and both seem entirely devoted to their wives (how many Hollywood actors can you say that about? – not many). No wonder they are friends in RL.

    HJ has the best body? Well he certainly has the most muscular body at the moment (I guess in preparation for the next X-men film) – too muscle bound as far as I’m concerned.

    They’re both multi-talented, but EB is a much better actor IMHO (check out Chopper, Romulus and Munich, in particular). I haven’t been impressed by HJ’s performances in his non-Australian films.

    Let’s be shallow again – face-wise, sorry but HJ can’t compete with those gorgeous eyes of EB’s.

  • Roberta

    I wish to have a man like him!

  • Roberta

    And I agree with Chrissie.

  • maria

    eric is very hot and sexy and him deserved the prize!!!!!!!!!!
