David Michod's Animal Kingdom tied with Jane Campion's Bright Star at the Australian Film Institute's "industry" awards, which were announced Dec. 10. The "top" awards will be announced Dec. 11.

Animal Kingdom received trophies for best editing (Luke Doolan) and best original music score (Antony Partos and Sam Petty), in addition to the AFI members' choice prize -- a sort of "side" Best Picture award.

Bright Star, which was screened in competition at the Cannes Film Festival in 2009, won AFI awards for best cinematography (Greig Fraser), best production design (Janet Patterson), and best costume design (also Patterson).

Other feature-film winners were Stuart Beattie's Tomorrow When the War Began, winner of the best sound award, and Peter and Michael Spierig's Daybreakers, which was given the award for best visual effects.

Andrew Ruhemann and Shaun Tan's The Lost Thing, a semi-finalist for the 2011 Academy Award in the Best Animated Short category, won the best animation award.
