The 2021 AACTA Awards took place on Wednesday at the Sydney Opera House with Australia's biggest stars walking the red carpet.

And while Australia is finally starting to open up, 2021 was quite a difficult one for many people, so we asked all the celebrities the big question: If 2021 was a person, what would you say to them?

The Living Room cast had quite a mixed response, but Amanda Keller was firm with her thoughts on the matter, telling us, "I've got a son in year 12 and I really feel for him, so I'd like to kick 2021 in the d**k!"


Dr Chris Brown was quick to stand up for his co-host, saying, "And if she's doing that, I'm just gonna back her up!"

"Scrag fight, 2021, I'm gonna see her behind the toilets and I'm gonna pull her hair!" Amanda joked.

Nakkiah Lui, who was also nominated, jokingly said, "I feel like 2021 and I would be frenemies! Like, we've had some really great moments, but I'm looking forward to 2022!"

Courtney Act seemingly couldn't remember which year we were actually in, asking, "Wait, what year are we in now? 2021. 2020, was the really s***ty bit, 2021 wasn't too bad!"

Eliza Scanlen's message was simple: "Keep on keeping on!"

Luxe Listing Sydney's Gavin Rubinstein was a fan of 2021, telling us, "Thanks for the blessings, I love you."

The Bachelor's Brittany Hockley kept things very simple, saying, "Bye!"
