Australian Actor Giustino Della Vedova to Host 43rd Young Artist Academy Nomination Announcements

 Australian Actor Giustino Della Vedova has been selected by the Young Artist Academy Board of Governors to Host the organization’s first in-person event in three years.

Since the very beginning of the pandemic, the Young Artist Academy has been cautious and safe in order to protect its young talent. One such way has been by pivoting to virtual events, educational and publicity opportunities for its members.

Throughout 2020 and 2021 the nonprofit organization has partnered or participated in events ranging from Comic Con International, The ENT. Bash, Gen Z Social Summit, as well as spearheading its own bi-monthly Social Media Campus. The past two awards shows have been all digital, nonetheless featuring some of the biggest names in entertainment, such as Academy Alumni Scarlett Johansson, Brooke Shields, Regina King and Mario Lopez, as well as celebrities Tiffany Haddish, Trevor Noah, Mark Cuban, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, Kelsey Grammer, Robert Herjavec and Martin Lawrence.

Academy Chairman Simon Barron commented, “We have taken a more cautious approach these last three turbulent years, and for good reason, considering the precious young talent we serve. We are happy to begin these renewed times with a sense of optimism. Yet we are using discretion, as all are still strongly encouraged to wear masks at our in-person nomination party.”

Master of Ceremonies and Host Giustino Della Vedova is an Australian actor born in Melbourne. He is a highly accomplished stage and screen actor, having trained at Stella Adler Academy and the London Actors Workshop. His credits include Rock Sugar, St Elmo, The Goose, and Last Breath. Della Vedova is also a writer and producer, having launched his own production company, Small Town Production.

The 43rd Young Artist Academy Nomination Announcements take place at KidzCon in the Anaheim Convention Center on July 15th at 8:00pm PT, and will be streamed live on FrudyTV platforms.

Former Australian PM Shares Insights on “Talking Foreign Affairs”

 John Howard, the Former Australian Prime Minister, was the recent guest on “Talking Foreign Affairs” with Adil Cader. The two discuss the key foreign policy highlights of Howard’s time in office and a range of geopolitical subjects. Talking about the possibility of a potential military conflict between the United States and China, Howard remarks that a military conflict between the two countries is not imminent in the foreseeable future. He further adds that, “China has no interest in a military conflict with the United States.”

The Australian leader expresses his views on multilateralism and bilateralism, giving preference to the latter. Having served the second longest in office, Howard opens up about his time at the office, soft power as well as sports diplomacy, an area that is dear to him. Adil Cader moves forward with a question on the importance of a connection between heads of states in terms of developing bilateral relationships. Mr. Howard responds, “The America-Australia relationship is bigger and goes beyond who happens to be in Canberra or the White House. It can cross the party-political divide.”

Mr. Howard recounts how Australia stood alongside the US during the Vietnam War, which happened to be the most controversial American foreign policy decision in the last 50 or 60 years. On Britain, he suggests a “realistic” approach to bilateral relations, maintaining that he is very supportive of the English institutions and their contribution to the many characteristics within the Australian constitution. However, he adds, “We’ve never had a class driven society or aristocracy because we decided that wasn’t suitable for Australia.” Towards the end, he talks about his favourite sporting event while in office and the significance of the time during which it took place.

John Winston Howard served as Australia’s 25th Prime Minister and is the nation’s second longest serving Prime Minister, was a Member of Parliament for 33 years, and was Treasurer in an earlier government.

“Our purpose is to empower and encourage young people to play an active role in foreign affairs and diplomacy, to combat global challenges. We enable this by engaging World Leaders to share their learnings and perspectives on foreign affairs and diplomacy,” said Adil Cader, the Founder and Host of “Talking Foreign Affairs.”

“Talking Foreign Affairs” has interviewed several World Leaders, from a UN Secretary-General to Heads of State, from Nobel Laureates to those who have led mission-critical organisations like the WTO, World Bank and NASA.
