UK REGIONAL FILM CRITICS AWARDS GO TO CRITICS' FAVOURITES


No prizes for guessing which films have won the Richard Attenborough Film Awards from the UK Regional Film Critics!

Word has it that Screen On Screen itself was narrowly beaten to the award for Blogger of the Year, but that it was beaten in a tie-break round, and only because of sympathy votes for Den of Geek, obvs.
