Last King of Scotland wins BAFTA's

BAFTA.jpgThe Scottish BAFTA's have just been awarded and The Last King of Scotland has proven to be a big hit as it takes Best Film, Best Actor for James McAvoy, and Best Screenplay.

Sophia Myles also took Best Actress for Hallam Foe, and the full awards are listed here, as well as a cracking comment from McAvoy.

While accepting his award James McAvoy said:

“I am very pleased to have won the award. It's nice to get it at home in Scotland, in Glasgow and in front of my family...I've played a lot of Englishmen, and for Scottish BAFTA to forgive me for that and award me for playing a Scotsman is very humbling.”

He's also announced that he's planning a break from films to spend some time at home with his family, a great choice but he will be sorely missed from the big screen, Wanted will be his last film while he goes to renovate his home and enjoy some quality family time.

Here are the list of winners for Film and TV alike via The Scotsman.
