Clare Balding, Lynne Ramsay and Olivia Colman were among the winners at this year’s Sky Women in Film and TV (WFTV) Awards. The awards were announced today (December 7) at a ceremony at the London Hilton, Park Lane, hosted by Sue Perkins.
Olivia Colman was re-united on stage with her Peep Show collaborators David Mitchell and Robert Webb, who presented her with her Award. Other presenters included, Gabby Logan, Davina McCall, Jessica Raine, Evan Davis, and Mark Foster.
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.
That Sue Perkins came back this year to host the ceremony, and Julie Walters returned in a presenting capacity, is testimony to the fact that our Awards are a ‘not to be missed’ occasion and tickets sold out in a record 28 minutes this year!
Every single one of our winners is an inspiration and a role model. We salute them all and have done our best to throw them the Awards ceremony they deserve!”
