BAFTA SCOTLAND WITH RICHARD MADDEN, JACKIE BIRD AND JACK LOWDEN



Beverley Lyons
RICHARD Madden, Kelly Macdonald, Shirley Henderson, Jack Lowden, Jenna Coleman and Peter Mullan have been announced as contenders for major honours at this year's prestigious BAFTA Scotland ceremony.
In news that might shock some, Chris Pine  failed to get a nomination at this year’s Awards bash while co-star Florence Pugh received a nomination for best actress in Outlaw King. 
And TV show Hogmanay Live with Jackie Bird was also nominated in the same week that the presenter stepped down from the role amidst programme changes.  
TV mystery The Cry, which Doctor Who favourite Jenna Coleman starred in and was partly filmed in Glasgow, leads the race for honours with three nominations alongside Wild Rose, the hit Glasgow-set movie about a country singer, played by Irish actress Wild Rose, pursuing her dreams of going to Nashville.
Jess Buckley who starred in the country film will be up against Shirley Henderson, who played Oliver Hardy's wife opposite John C Reilly in Stan and Ollie, and Florence Pugh, for her role in Outlaw King, Netflix's Robert the Bruce epic, in the best film Actress category.
This year’s Actor Film category sees last year’s winner Jack Lowden receiving a nomination for his role in Mary Queen of Scots alongside Peter Mullan (The Vanishing) and Lorn Macdonald (Beats).
Richard Madden is also up for his third Actor Television award after winning a Golden Globe and National TV award for his performance in The Bodyguard.
 He will be competing against Alex Ferns (Chernobyl) and Ncuti Gatwa (Sex Education) in the category  while Morven Christie (The Bay), Jenna Coleman (The Cry) and Kelly Macdonald (The Victim) vie for the Actress Television awards. 
The Entertainment category will see BBC’s Hogmanay Live battle it out against two CBBC children’s shows - The Dog Ate My Homework presented by Iain Stirling and digital game show Last Commanders. 
Comedy-drama Stan & Ollie, the coming-of-age feature Beats, drama The Victim, and documentary Real Kashmir F.C., have all received two nominations for the awards bash which will take place on Sunday November 3.
The awards, including those for Outstanding Contribution, will be presented at this year’s prestigious ceremony, hosted by Edith Bowman, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Central.
The change of venue from The Radisson Blu means a bigger ceremony with over seven hundred guests.
  Red carpet coverage will begin at 17.00 and the ceremony will be livestreamed from 19.00 on Facebook. A special awards highlights programme will be broadcast on BBC Scotland at 22.00, which will also be available on iPlayer.  
Jude MacLaverty, Director of BAFTA Scotland, said: “This year the awards nominations are up by almost fifty per cent which demonstrates an increase in the volume of work being produced here, clearly highlighted by this year’s shortlist. 
 We are hugely excited about this year’s awards, with the nominations yet again showcasing the wealth of creative talent in Scotland’sfilm, games and television industries.
 “It is fantastic to have Edith back with us again as our awards host at our new, bigger venue.  BAFTA Scotland is delighted, too, to be able to share our recognition of the phenomenal work and talent in Scotland with a much wider audience in a BBC Scotland 
highlights programme due to be broadcast from 22.00 on the night.”
Edith Bowman, returning host of the ceremony,said: “The British Academy Scotland Awards is an exceptional event that champions the very best in creativity and production in Scotland and I am delighted to be returning to host this year.  As an organisation, BAFTA Scotland plays such an important role in the support and development of creative talent as well as providing a real platform for recognition. I can’t wait to recognise the achievements of all of these incredible nominees on 3 November and very much look forward to seeing who takes home these coveted awards.”
