Welcome to the brand new version of Toni Collette Online. The new look also marks this year’s 10th anniversary of Toni Collette Online, which is exciting and unbelievable at the same time. In 2005, after many years of collecting and thinking about creating a website for Toni Collette, I gave it a go in 2005. The opening came just in time with the theatrical release of “In her Shoes”, which I wouldn’t count among my personal favorites, but which proved to be a commercial success and ultimately lead to all the great things that followed in the past 10 years – “Little Miss Sunshine”, “United States of Tara”, an array of fantastic leading and supporting roles on film, television and the theatre, not to mention a music tour. The best thing of all? It’s all here! It feels like a great privilege to cover such an interesting and diverse career of a truly remarkable artist. Here’s to the next 10 years. My most sincere thanks to everyone who’s written and contributed material during this time, it has been very appreciated. While the site has been updated completely, the filmography pages have been left out for now, since I plan to give this important section a much-needed overhaul. So, for now, enjoy browsing and keep checking back.

This year’s Ifta nominations, covering films released or first screened in 2014, come later than usual.

Awards will be handed out on May 24.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Joan Jett has recorded a song for the forthcoming film, Miss You Already. The song is the title track to the movie — which focuses on the lifelong friendship of two women — and hits on the film’s themes of loss and the preciousness of memories in a razor-toothed surge of guitars with a hot chorus,” according to Rolling Stone. It was written by Jett, guitarist Dougie Needles and Jett’s longtime manager Kenny Laguna. “I give her pop..She gives me menace,” said Laguna of the track. Helmed by Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, the movie stars Drew Barrymore, Toni Collette, Dominic Cooper and Jacqueline Bissett. Jett also spoke with Rolling Stone about sexism in rock. “People look at women differently,” Jett says. “Men are viable into old age. Women all of a sudden become matronly? C’mon, man!” Jett — who is on the road with The Who through November — said a typical day off stage consists of doing “nothing.” “If I can help it,” she said “I’d work at the animal shelter. Or I kick back on my royalties, just be out in nature.”

“Blinky Bill” is bringing the iconic children’s book character to 3D-animated life, featuring the voices of Ryan Kwanten, Toni Collette, David Wenham, Richard Roxburgh, Deborah Mailman and Barry Humphries. Generations of Aussie kids have grown up with the famous koala since he was first featured in Dorothy Wall’s illustrated book series in the 1930s. Since then he’s been adapted to television in puppet form in 1980s show The New Adventures of Blinky Bill as well as animated 90s cartoon series The Adventures of Blinky Bill. The story follows the tale of the mischievous Blinky Bill as he journeys from his home town of Green Patch to search for his missing father. Accompanied by Nutsy, a zoo koala, and Jacko, a nervous frill-necked lizard, they journey through the rough and wild Aussie outback, meeting many challenges along the way! The film is due to hit cinemas in Australia from the 17th September.
