    Russell Crowe, 56, and Nicole Kidman, 53, have united for a surprise new role ahead of the 2020 AACTA Awards.

    On Sunday, Russell and Nicole were officially named the AACTA president and vice president respectively, stepping into the role of former president Geoffrey Rush.    

    ‘I want to refocus our politicians of all persuasions on the power and reach of our local screen industry,’ Russell told The Sunday Telegraph.

    ‘I’ll be working on encouraging the government to give Australian producers the fiscal tools they need to be globally competitive, while simultaneously fostering local talent and magnetising the industry to attract international productions,’ he said.

    Russell continued: ‘We need to grow our membership in every area of the industry and encourage people who work in film and television and people who love film and television to get involved with their Academy.’

    Geoffrey Rush voluntarily left his post as the president as AACTA president in 2017 after the Sydney Theatre Company confirmed it was investigating an allegation of ‘inappropriate behaviour’ – claims which Geoffrey strongly denies.

    This year’s AACTA Awards ceremony will go ahead with some notable adjustments to ensure the event complies with COVID-19 restrictions.

    While both the Logie Awards and Helpmann Awards were cancelled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, organisers are determined for the show to go ahead. 

    The awards will include a limited audience due to the venue’s limited capacity, while this year’s industry luncheon will be presented online. 

    Dedicated: Nicole has long been a supporter of the Australian film industry, having recently commenced filming her '$100million' production of Hulu series Nine Perfect Strangers in New South Wales

    Meanwhile, organisers have also introduced an AACTA Audience Choice Awards initiative which will see audiences cast their vote on Australian screen achievements across the past decade.

    A free online festival called ScreenFest will also run the entire week, connecting the film industry with fans. 

    AACTA Awards will take place at The Star’s Event Centre on December 2.
