Winners of 2009 Evening Standard British Film Awards Announced


The winners of the 2009 Evening Standard British Film Awards are varied from Stephen Daldry's drama 'The Reader' to Martin McDonagh's action comedy 'In Bruges'.

Trophies of the 2009 Evening Standard British Film Awards have been handed out on Sunday, February 1. In a private dinner hosted by Standard editor Veronica Wadley, Steve McQueen's dramatisation of IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands' last days, "Hunger", has been hailed as Best Film, beating out "Frost/Nixon" and "Unrelated".

While "Hunger" won the top prize, "Slumdog Millionaire" director Danny Boyle and actress Kate Winslet were shunned away from the kudo they were up for. Boyle, who was named Best Director by the Directors Guild of America on Saturday, January 31, lost to "The Reader" director Stephen Daldry, and Winslet, who won two Golden Globes earlier this year for her performances in "The Reader" and "Revolutionary Road" has to see the Best Actress title go to "Julia" star, Tilda Swinton.

Other winners for this year's Evening Standard British Film Awards included Michael Sheen of "Frost/Nixon" and Pat Shortt of "Garage", who were in tie for Best Actor prize, and "In Bruges" writer Martin McDonagh, who was awarded with Best Screenplay kudo. Actress Sally Hawkins has been given the Peter Sellers Award for Comedy for her portrayal of irrepressibly free-spirited school teacher Poppy in "Happy-Go-Lucky".
