In the TV categories, Australian productions Heartbreak High and Mystery Road: Origin are both up for best drama series, up against Severance, Stranger Things and The Bear.

The White Lotus: Sicily is up for best comedy series, after the first season won in the category at the AACTA’s last year, and will go up against Wednesday, Only Murders In The Building, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Hacks.
