Awardswise, when it rains it pours. Every year the Australian magazine, Filmink, gives out an eclectic array of awards, from Best Movie That Critics Hate to Best Blue Rinse Movie. Now you might think that the latter one’s the award that Inside Deep Throat scooped at the prestigious ceremony, but in fact IDT beat out stiff competition from Tarnation, Enron:The Smartest Guys in the Room, Mad Hot Ballroom, and Dig! to win Best Documentary. Hooray for Ozzywood!
Our taped acceptance speech (watch it here) was a bit of a shambles, so now is the time to properly thank the peeps at Dendy Films for doing such a bang-up job promoting and marketting the film: Richard Payton, Andrew Mackie, Nicki Martin, Matthew Soulos and, in particular, the adorable Chris Chamberlin, who manhandled all the press down under. Ooh er.
