Because everybody needs more Neighbours, Amazon is behind the revival via its free, ad-supported Amazon Freevee streaming service (which was formerly known as IMDb TV). 🎉 pic.twitter.com/1Qq2fIPgog — Neighbours (@neighbours) November 17, 2022Amazon will pick up the show after more than 9000 past episodes, and also stream thousands of those instalments from prior seasons before the new season premieres. "This partnership with Amazon Freevee marks an exciting new chapter, and we look forward to collaborating with them, along with our long-term and valued partner in Australia, Network 10." And yes, as Amazon's announcement video shows, the iconic Neighbours theme tune remains part of the series — because good Neighbours songs become good friends, naturally. Neighbours will return for a new season in 2023, airing via Network Ten and Prime Video in Australia, Prime Video in New Zealand, and Amazon Freevee in the UK and US.
When Baz Luhrmann makes a new film, the world takes notice — including the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts and its annual awards. Topping the just-announced nominations for this year's AACTA Awards — which were previously called the AFI Awards, before changing their name — Elvis picked up a whopping 15 nods, the most of any film. The accolades recognise the best and brightest in Australian cinema and television each year, with Mystery Road: Origin also scoring the same amount of noms in the TV categories. In their respective formats, Elvis and Mystery Road: Origin have plenty of company. Across both film and TV, a heap of international names graced the acting nominations, too, a common AACTAs trend.1 month ago Concrete Playground
