The win was universally predicted, as was the film’s easy dominance of the evening’s other film prizes - Best Actress for Kate Dickie, Best Actor for Tony Curran, and both Best Screenplay and Best Director for Andrea Arnold.
This meant a clean sweep of the major prizes for a film that had faced little significant competition. There were only six potential nominees from the past year of Scottish feature film productions.
The Flying Scotsman and True North were the only other titles to make it to the final shortlist and both were leftempty-handed in an evening hosted by television presenter Lorraine Kelly.
