If it was a week or even 3 days earlier I could do just that as I'll be down in Victoria where it's being held. The best I can do is hope that Heath and Michelle are wondering around a few days before and I bump into them. :s)

p.s. will carry my camera at all times ;)

I'm just so excited.  Isn't this just wonderful.  I talked to Luke Davies on Sunday and he said life is still a burr right now after winning the best adapted screenplay.  Everyone in Australia is just thrilled.  It was an incredible honor and night for them
