BAFTA Scotland winners announced

Big success for Donkeys.

by Jennie Kermode

Morag McKinnon's grim comedy Donleys has scooped the top prize at this year's Scottish BAFTAs, as well as picking up a Best Actor gong for star James Cosmo. Peter Mullen won Best Director and Best Writer for NEDS, but the favourites were pipped at the post when it came to the Audience Award, which, in a surprise turn of events, went to Carter Ferguson's indie debut Fast Romance.

I Love Luci took Best Short Film, while the award for Best Documentary went to Terry Pratchett: Choosing To Die, already highly acclaimed at festivals. Robbie Coltrane received an award for his outstanding contribution to film in a career that has included turns in films as varied as Mona Lisa, Henry V and the Harry Potter adaptations.
