Mel Gibson & Isla Fisher Win Big At AACTA Awards 2016!

Rose Byrne is all smiles while hitting the stage to present alongside Damon Herriman at the 2016 AACTA Awards presented by Foxtel at The Star on Tuesday (December 7) in Sydney, Australia.

The 37-year-old actress was joined at the event by Mel Gibson, Isla Fisher and her husband Sacha Baron Cohen, and performer of the evening Boy George.

Isla, 40, was the recipient of the Trailblazer Award from AACTA president Geoffrey Rush for her work advocating for strong comedic roles in Hollywood while building her career as an acclaimed dramatic actor and an author.

“It’s the pinnacle of my career so far, and a complete honour,” Isla expressed (via The Guardian). “There aren’t many roles for gingers, particularly because Amy Adams stole them all. I’d also like to thank Donald Trump for showing the world that it’s okay for unqualified orange people to win things.”

Mel‘s latest film Hacksaw Ridge swept the awards during the ceremony, winning five major prizes – for Best Lead Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Original Screenplay, Best Direction and Best Film.
