My good friend Rosemary (Walker), who is now a major force in the Matilda Awards, wants to see this 25-year-old tradition in the Playhouse Theatre within five years.

 She says, and I believe this to be correct, that there's nothing else like it in Australia. The event at the Judith Wright Centre, known as The Judy, was a magificent success.

There were about 300 industry representatives there and it was a tight, torte and terrific show. My only reservation was that 13 (great) identities were inducted into the Hall of Fame in one go.

They all had won more than three Matildas. Rosemary says in future only one will be inducted each year. Good move.
