  Smith booed at own testimonial match Not in a million years would Cameron Smith think he would be booed by Queensland fans at Suncorp stadium but that’s exactly what happened during the Storm skipper’s testimonial match. It was dubbed A Night with Cam and JT however it was clear the 25,000 attendees who braved monsoonal weather at last night’s match were only there to cheer on the North Queensland captain.About ten minutes into the second half with the scores locked at 8-all, Smith was lining up a conversion when a wave of boos started streaming in across the ground.

"This is the most awesome thing that can happen to a guy like me," Smith said as he accepted the award. "Dunkirk was an incredible film and I was truly lucky to work on it." Lee Smith accepts the Oscar for best film editing for Dunkirk.

Australia's Lee Smith has won the Oscar for editing the World War II epic Dunkirk.

It was third time lucky for the Sydney 57-year-old after being nominated for The Dark Knight in 2009 and Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World in 2004 but left both ceremonies empty-handed.

"This is the most awesome thing that can happen to a guy like me," Smith told the the A-List crowd at the 90th Academy Awards at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre on Sunday.

Smith, who started his movie career as a 16-year-old making coffee at a Sydney film production business, has formed a strong bond with Dunkirk's British director Christopher Nolan.

Dunkirk was the seventh film they have collaborated on.

Smith joked that Nolan was also an editor, but he was "happy" that Nolan did not handle the editing equipment when they worked.

Smith's win is the fourth time in seven years an Australian has won the editing category.

Another Aussie, Paul Machliss, was nominated in the category on Sunday for his editing work on the action film Baby Driver.

Australian duo Josh Lawson and Derin Seale have missed out on the live action short Oscar for their comedy The Eleven O'Clock.

Margot Robbie is the only other Australian still in contention for the coveted best actress Oscar for her role striking performance as controversy-plagued US Olympic ice skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya.
