  1. Still baffles me why Seven airs an edited version of the AACTA Awards, and has done so for a few years now. I guess, its good that Foxtel (Arts) has aired a full version. with proper repeats. The way it should be.

    Just noticed that 7two has “that edited version” at 12.30pm (in Syd) today. Will try watch some of it….

  2. Not sure why Seven couldn’t broadcast this extended (proper) version on Wednesday night? Imagine if the Oscars aired a very badly edited version on Oscar night, and then the full show aired 2 days later? It’d never happen. Don’t think think I can sit through this again, but I managed to watch the In Memoriam segment on YouTube, which was disappointingly omitted from Seven’s broadcast. Hope they get given more respect in 2020.
