LIZZIE KNIGHT: "AP ShowBiz Minute". Female country stars owned the ACM Awards Sunday night. Maren Morris won two honors, including Song of the Year. Miranda Lambert performed three times and held on to her record as the most decorated winner in ACM history. And Mickey Guyton was the first Black woman to host the awards show.

Luke Bryan was named Entertainer of the Year, but accepted his honor remotely due to a positive COVID-19 test. A prequel to the "Mad Max" movie franchise starring Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth will be filmed in Australia. "Furiosa" is slated for release in mid 2023, but the New South Wales state government leader says it's expected to become the biggest film ever made in Australia.

Hemsworth and writer, director George Miller say they're happy to be filming in their home country. "Godzilla vs. Kong" continued to rule the US and international box office at the week end, with estimated total earnings of over $300 million. Action thriller, "Nobody", landed in second place with supernatural horror, "The Unholy" in third. This is Lizzie Knight with "AP ShowBiz Minute."
