The nominees for the prestigious 2021 AACTA Awards have been announced and comedian Christian Hull is among the stellar nominated talent.
The annual event honours the best of Australian television, film, and digital entertainment for their performances and creations over the past year.
In the AACTA Audience Awards section, which puts voting in the hands of those who really matter, the audience at home, Hull has been nominated.
He’s up for Favourite Digital Comedy Creator, recognised for his hilarious viral videos. And with many creators having to pivot to digital content due to the constraints of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s probably one of the toughest categories to compete in this year.
He’ll face strong competition for Favourite Digital Comedy Creator from the likes of Tom Cardy and Fairbairn Films.
