Last night, Edith Bowman played host to the British Academy Scotland Awards 2012, celebrating the year’s best and most promising talent in Scotland.
Previously known as the BAFTA Scotland Awards, the nominations were announced last month, with Ken Loach’s The Angel’s Share leading the pack, having taken home the Jury Prize at Cannes back in the spring.
Zam Salim came away with the Best Director and Best Feature Film awards for his feature directorial debut, Up There, which was released in UK cinemas on Friday – if it’s playing in a theatre near you, this should definitely be encouragement enough to go and seek it out, if you haven’t done so already.

Formerly known as the BAFTA Scotland Awards, the nominations for this year’s British Academy Scotland Awards 2012 have been announced, with the ever-brilliant Edith Bowman officially set to host the awards ceremony next month.
Leading the pack with four nominations to its name is Ken Loach’s The Angel’s Share, which took home the Jury Prize at Cannes earlier this year.
Following closely behind with two nominations each are Kevin Bridges and Zam Salim, the latter nominated in both the Best Director and Best Feature Film categories for the forthcoming, Up There, which will be released on 16th November in the UK.
The Scotland-born Bowman has a wealth of experience that makes her a perfect fit for the awards, having presented pretty much every major music festival the UK has to offer through her career, along with hosting the Q Awards back in 2005 on BBC Radio 1.
