Jude MacLaverty, Director of BAFTA Scotland, said: “This year has remained an incredibly challenging one for many, and so we are delighted to have been able to recognise the achievements of the film, games and television industries that have continued to keep us informed and entertained during this time. We were also thrilled to be able to welcome back a live, specially invited audience of nominees – albeit a smaller one than usual - and we would like to thank our incredible hosts, guest presenters and wonderful partners for helping us deliver such a brilliant show tonight. It really has been absolutely fantastic to celebrate the inspiring work that’s being produced in Scotland over the past year, and we would like to offer our warmest congratulations to all our worthy winners and nominees.”
