‘Moon’ shines on BIFAs

'Fish Tank' hooks double honors

The British Independent Film Awards spread its honors widely Sunday but Duncan Jones’ “Moon” shone brightest, winning film and debut director kudos.

“Fish Tank” also hooked double honors with prizes for director – Andrea Arnold – and newcomer – Katie Jarvis.

Although nommed in six categories, “An Education” majored in just one, with Carey Mulligan nabbing the actress award.

“Nowhere Boy,” Sam Taylor-Wood’s riff on the teen times of John Lennon, also had six noms but harmonized with the jury in just one category, supporting actress for Anne-Marie Duff.

Other thesping prizes went to Tom Hardy for the lead role in “Bronson” and John Henshaw for his supporting part in “Looking for Eric.”

The writing team behind “In the Loop” took the laurels in their category.

Michael Caine received a standing ovation as he picked up the Variety Award, and was almost lost for words, although he did thank award organizers for not showing the clips of his movies in chronological order as he didn’t want to see himself aging before his eyes, he said.
