Caleb Landry Jones, star of the controversial film Nitram, is among the nominees for this year's Asia Pacific Screen Awards.
Now in its 14th year, the APSA considers films from 70 countries and is the region's highest accolade in film.
Nitram, which was filmed in Victoria, has drawn criticism from some groups in Tasmania, as the narrative delves into the lead-up to The Port Arthur Massacre and the life of its perpetrator.
Jones has already nabbed a Cannes Film Festival Award or Best Actor for the portrayal of the unnamed lead.
Meanwhile, up for Best Performance by an Actress are Australians Leah Purcell for The Drover's Wife: The Legend of Molly Johnson and Essie Davis for The Justice of Bunny King.
Winners will be announced at the APSA Ceremony on Thursday, November 11.
