Robert Carlyle and Peter Capaldi win Scottish Baftas

Robert Carlyle won the Bafta Scotland award for best TV actor for The Unloved and Peter Capaldi won for the award for best actor for In the Loop. Peter Capaldi couldn't make it to the ceremony because according to In the Loop director Armando Iannucci - who picked up the award on his behalf - he was "flogging the film in LA because it's the start of the award season there. He was gutted to find out it had clashed with this." Robert Carlyle talked about what it meant to win:
"It's lovely, it's a fantastic thing, I was saying earlier on to people, I mean, ten years ago, to be honest with you, you wouldn't have thought too much of this, it was always nice to get a wee-kind of nod - but the quality of the nominations now is just getting higher and higher."

"The acting awards this year and last year - there's so many top quality Scots male actors at the moment that to be included amongst any kind of list of nominees you've got to be happy with that. You've got to be pleased with that. So, it's really come up, I think." [Yahoo! News UK]
