Aussie filmmaker Taika Waititi has won the award for Best Adapted Screenplay at this year’s Academy Awards, for his film Jojo Rabbit.

The much-loved local boy was actually born in New Zealand, but spent a holiday in Melbourne once when he was a kid, making him Australian. “Everything he knows about filmmaking he learnt on that 6-day holiday when he was eight. Australians should be super proud of what he’s achieved since,” an industry insider said.

He joins fellow Aussie Russel Crowe as a winner on film’s night of nights.
