AACTA Award for Best Lead Actor in a Television Drama

The Australian Film Institute Award for Best Lead Actor in Television Drama is awarded annually by the Australian Film Institute as part of the awards in television for excellence in acting in television drama by an actor.

Prior to 1990, two awards existed and were called Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini Series and Best Lead Actor in a Telefeature. The awards were merged in 1990 to become Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Telefeature or Mini Series which in 1991 was renamed Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Television Drama. In 2000, the Awards were again awarded in two categories, called Best Performance by an Actor in a Telefeature or Mini Series and Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Television Drama. In 2002, the Awards were again combined under the title Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Television Drama and two years later, in 2004, the Award was named Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Television Drama or Comedy. A separate comedy Award was established in 2006, and this Award became Best Lead Actor in Television Drama.[1]
