Armando Iannucci’s political satire In The Loop was the big winner at the Scottish Baftas last night (November 8) picking up awards for best director, best writing and best actor.

Peter Capaldi, who plays foul-mouthed government spin doctor Malcolm Tucker in the film, took Bafta for best actor, while Robert Carlyle won best TV actor for his role in Samanta Morton’s directorial debut The Unloved, which screened first on British TV but has gone on to tour the festival circuit.

The Bafta for best feature went to Justin Molotnikov’s revenge thriller Crying With Laughter.

Meanwhile, director Bill Forsyth, whose credits include Gregory’s Girl and Local Hero, received a Bafta for outstanding contribution to film, while Jeremy Isaacs was given the same honour for broadcasting.
