Four 1986 Australian Film Institute nominations: Best Music, Best Sound, Cinematography and Costume Design.
Trivia: Best music score winner in 1986 was "Young Einstein" (Bill Motzing and Martin Armiger). In hindsight it was an ironic decision, as little of the Award-winning score remained in the film when it was released in the cinemas. The film was refilmed, recut and rescored, with additional music by Simon Walker and Tommy Tycho and other re-scoring and the addition of several pop songs.
