WFTV Awards 2012 - the winners
Olivia Colman, Clare Balding and film director Lynne Ramsay were just some of the winners at the 22nd annual Women in Film & TV Awards (WFTV), which took place at the London Hilton, Park Lane on Friday 7 December.
Hosted by Sue Perkins, the event was attended by almost a thousand of film and TV’s key players.
Honouring her presenting duties for the Olympics and Paralympics, Clare Balding picked up The ITV Studios Achievement of the Year Award; whist actress Olivia Colman received The Mac Best Performance Award, in recognition of her roles over the past year.
Critically acclaimed director of We Need to Talk About Kevin, Lynne Ramsay won The Deluxe Digital London Director Award, but wasn't the only helmer who walked away victorious - Sally El Hosaini was awarded The Fremantle UK New Talent Award for her film My Brother The Devil.
WFTV CEO, Kate Kinninmont, said: “It’s been another outstanding year for the Sky WFTV Awards! We’re so proud that three of our winners – Clare Balding, Barbara Slater and Tracey Seaward – were key players in delivering the most watched TV event in UK broadcasting history, the London Olympics.
I’m also particularly pleased that we have two exceptional film directors, Lynne Ramsay and Sally El Hosaini, amongst our winners this year. There’s still a significant gender disparity when it comes to feature film directors but the talent of Lynne and Sally, irrespective of their gender, is undeniable and I’m proud that our Awards are recognising that.”
