Full Winners  List of British Independent Film Awards 2008


Though 'In Bruges' led the nominees pack with seven gongs, it is 'Slumdog Millionaire' which swept the 11th British Independent Film Awards on Sunday, November 30.

The winners of the 11th British Independent Film Awards have been announced on Sunday, November 30, and one that is shinning brighter than the others is "Slumdog Millionaire". In the announcement made at Old Billingsgate Market in London, the Danny Boyle-directed movie about a poor Indian boy who gets a shot at winning millions in a television game show brought home three kudos.

Nominated for six categories, "Slumdog" has nailed three of the coveted awards given away, including the Best British Independent Film title. The romantic comedy drama has also brought recognition to its director Danny Boyle, who received the Best Director prize, and its star Dev Patel, who is hailed to be the Most Promising Newcomer.

In the meantime, "Hunger" and "In Bruges" which dominated the nomination with seven nods each failed to win big. "Hunger" got three awards, The Douglas Hickox Award or the Best Debut Director kudo for director Steve McQueen, Best Actor for Michael Fassbender and Best Technical Achievement for cinematographer Sean Bobbitt, while "In Bruges" only managed to walk away with one prize, Best Screenplay for Martin McDonagh.

    I agree with the previous comment. Zebra Crossings is destined to become something very special as fantastic new talent and screenplay is presented and quite rightly receives constant nominations and awards throughout europe, USA and south America. Very Well done to Director Sam Holland.
