British Independent Film Awards 2010


The Moët British Independent Film Awards 2010 that is in its 13th run this year has just released its list of winners, hosted by James Nesbitt at Old Billingsgate. It's of interest to see that the judges have selected The King's Speech as their favourite with a total of 5 awards, including Best Film, Best SCreenplay, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress. Surprisingly, the Best Director accolade went to Monsters' Gareth Edwards to remove a card from The King's Speech's deck of winning cards.

Other notable winners feature the likes of Best Actress Carey Mulligan for Never Let Me Go.
