Director Ken Loach's latest movie The Angels' Share landed two top prizes at the Scottish BAFTA Awards on Sunday (18Nov12).

The celebrated filmmaker's comedy/drama landed Paul Laverty the Best Writer Award at the annual British Academy Scotland Awards, the Scottish branch of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

Newcomer Paul Brannigan took home the Best Actor prize for his leading role, which he landed after telling writer Laverty about his own battle with addiction and opened up about the time he spent in a young offenders' institution.

Gregor Fisher won best TV Actor for sitcom Rab C. Nesbitt, while Up There was hailed Best Feature Film at the Glasgow event.

Funnyman Billy Connolly was also acknowledged for his career achievements with the Outstanding Contribution to Television and Film accolade.
