BAFTA Scotland 2012 Nominees

BAFTA.jpgThe nominees for the BAFTA Scotland 2012 awards have arrived and there are some expected names in the film categories as well as a few newcomers, however it does highlight that there aren't enough Scottish names getting mentioned and it's not for the lack of Scottish talent in film and television.

There's Scottish talent throughout film but perhaps not in the areas that interest the BAFTA awards, or certainly not by looking at the list of categories and nominees anyway.

What do you think? Is there a lack of Scottish talent? Is there a lack of noticing the Scottish talent we have and what it's producing, even if it's not what some want to see?
