THE first ever annual Broons Awards kicked off in Scotland tonight with a host of names including Gerard Butler, Lorraine Kelly, Judy Murray, Walter Smith, Aggie Mackenzie, Gordon Smith Bernard Gallagher and The Bay City Rollers.
Scotland's favourite comic strip family was celebrating its 80th anniversary in Glasgow's Grand Central Hotel by awarding Scotland's other families and friends for all their good work.
The stylish tartan and shortbread evening began with a lively performance by Clanadonia who whooped up the crowd before telly host Lorraine Kelly was introduced by an exclusive Broons comic strip.

She said: "I'm thrilled. I've never had a welcome like that before."
Guests were then treated to a very special message from Hollywood actor Gerard Butler and showbiz correspondent Ross King.
The duo enthused: "We're really sorry we can't be there tonight but we have been in The Broons ourselves and are really humbled by that. We are really humbled by you all so well done tonight."
The two lads then joked the Editor Richard Prest was buying everyone a drink before Gerard added that Ross would be buying a round. Ross of course corrected him saying he earned more money.
Guests tucked into traditional dishes of haggis, neeps, and tatties followed by fillet of beef and clootie dumpling for desert.
The ceremony itself awarded people - and one four legged friend - for their personal achievements, many in the face of adversity.
And there wasn't a dry eye in the house after hearing some of their stories.
Presenters included Walter Smith, Aggie Mackenzie, Sanjeev Kohli, Brian Soutar, Emmerdale's Bhasker Patel, and Judy Murray.
The Bay City Rollers closed the night with all their big hits and maw, paw and the bairns were left crying out for more.
The well deserving prize winners will be in the Sunday Post
