Their gongs are in the right place

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

You’ll get no se­ri­ous ar­gu­ments (well not many, any­way) from Reel News as re­gards the win­ners of the Evening Stan­dard Bri­tish film awards. Andy Serkis got the best ac­tor gong for his barn­storm­ing turn as Ian Dury in the thrilling biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll and Anne-Marie Duff won best ac­tress for play­ing John Len­non’s mum (what is it with all th­ese mu­sic flicks?) in Sam Tay­lor-Wood’s Nowhere Boy. Best film went to An­drea Arnold’s Fish Tank and – mak­ing up for its dis­grace­ful ex­clu­sion from even the Os­car long-list – Anvil! The Story of Anvil se­cured best doc­u­men­tary.
