Olivia Colman and Lynne Ramsay honoured at female-focused awards

Colman was the winner of the MAC Best Performance Award for her portrayal of Carol Thatcher, daughter of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, in 2011’s The Iron Lady, as well as her comedic turn in British TV series Twenty Twelve, at the annual Sky Women in Film and Television Awards (WFTV Awards).

Ramsay received the Deluxe Digital London Director Award for her movie adaptation of hard-hitting novel We Need To Talk About Kevin, which starred Tilda Swinton.

Previous WFTV award winner Julie Walters returned to the event to hand the EON Productions Lifetime Achievement prize to British producer Ruth Caleb, who boasts a long list of TV and film credits, including A Short Stay in Switzerland and Last Resort.

Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle also attended the gala to present The Envy Producer Award to Tracey Seaward for her work on his Olympic Games Opening Ceremony in the summer (12).
