Star Trek’s villain, Eric Bana was named Best Actor at the Australian Film Industry Awards tonight for his role in Romulus, My Father.
This is Bana’s second AFI Best Actor Award. He won in 2000 for playing the title role the gangster movie Chopper. Bana also picked The Reader’s Choice Award last night…so it look’s like Star Trek is going to play big down under. Romulus was the night’s big winner taking home Best Picture and 2 other acting trophies (the film had a total of 15 nominations).
Bana finished time traveling
Bana flew back to his home country of Australia to attend the awards after recently finishing shooting in Toronto for The Time Travelers Wife. Apparently he hasn’t been needed yet on the set of Star Trek.
