Finalists announced for 2023 Equity Ensemble Awards

By 9 March 2023 April 11th, 2024 Announcements, Awards

Congratulations to the actors who are finalists in the Equity Ensemble Awards for their work on Australian drama, comedy and miniseries programs that aired in 2022. Finalists were chosen by industry judging panels from 48 eligible Australian productions.

The Ensemble Awards honour outstanding performances by Australian small screen ensembles and recognise the truly collaborative process that leads to captivating viewing and powerful storytelling.

Since 2011 these awards have been a celebration of local talent and local stories, and a reminder of what’s at stake if we don’t vigorously defend Australian content on our screens.
