Ken Loach leaves Scottish BAFTAs victorious

Monday November 19, 2012

Ken Loach was one of the big winners at the Scottish BAFTA awards as he scooped two prizes for his latest film The Angel's Share.

Receiving awards for the best actor and the best writer, Ken's latest film follows the journey of a group of ex-offenders trying to steal whiskey from a distellery.

Dark comedy Up There was the other big winner, as it won awards for the best feature film and best director.

Best TV actor went to Rab C Nesbitt's Gregor Fisher who did not attend the ceremony. Also missing was Billy Connolly, who delivered a video message to the 500 guests acknowledging his award for Outstanding Contribution to film and TV.

Star Wars director George Lucas paid tribute to Trisha Biggar, who collected the Outstanding Contribution for Craft award for her costume design on all three Star Wars prequel films.

Mrs Brown's Boys beat Kevin Bridges's TV show What's The Story? to win for Best Comedy/Entertainment Programme.

Radio 1 DJ and host of the night Edith Bowman said: "It was an absolute honour to host the awards tonight and to help celebrate the very best Scottish talent in film, television and video games industries. To be amongst such amazing talent, some of them friends, is just brilliant. What an incredible night."
