Luhrmann received a Best Picture Oscar nomination for Moulin Rouge!, for which Martin won Oscars for Best Art Direction-Set Decoration and Best Costume Design. She also won two Academy Awards for Best Production Design and Best Costume Design for The Great Gatsby, and was Oscar-nominated for her work on Australia and Romeo + Juliet.
