2013 BAFTA Scotland nominations

For Those In Peril

I Am Breathing, For Those in Peril and Fire In The Night among films nominated

Peter Mullan, Martin Compston, Ford Kiernan and Sharon Rooney are just a clutch of the Scottish talent nominated for this year’s coveted BAFTA Scotland awards. The winners will be announced at the British Academy Scotland Awards ceremony in Glasgow, on Sun 17 November, hosted by Edith Bowman. Mullan and co join a host of the country’s finest in a list that celebrates the best of the film, television and games industries over the past year.

This year’s awards roll honour the stories of everything from one man’s fight against Motor Neurone Disease (the deeply moving I am Breathing, which has three nominations) to the touching tale of a young man who survives a fishing disaster in the beautifully shot For Those in Peril, which leads the march with four nominations.

Ford Kiernan, Peter Mullan and Sharon Rooney will fight it out in the Best Actor / Actress TV Category, with Iain de Caestecker, Martin Compston and George Mackay nominated for Best Film Actor.

The Best Director category is likely to be fiercely contested, with Kenny Glenaan (Case Histories), Emma Davie & Morag McKinnon (I am Breathing) and Paul Wright (For Those in Peril) each more than earning their place, in this year’s nominee line-up, with an equally stellar line up of names up for the coveted Best Writer category.

The award for Best Feature Film will also be well fought, with Fire in the Night, For Those in Peril and The Wee Man all up for the much sought-after gong.

As part of the celebrations, BAFTA Scotland will also be announcing the winners of the Outstanding Contribution to Television and Film, Outstanding Contribution to Broadcasting, Outstanding Contribution to Craft and a special Games industry award.
