King of Scotland for a day

Edinburgh fest crackers for Graham

EDINBURGH — Tilda Swinton donned a kilt for the penultimate day of this year’s 64th Edinburgh fest, leading a “flash mob” in the Laurel & Hardy dance at the city’s Festival Square. She then joined fellow fest patron Seamus McGarvey and EIFF artistic director Hannah McGill on Friday to present the event’s awards. Nick Whitfield nabbed the Michael Powell Award for his dark satire “Skeletons,” while “Monsters” helmer Gareth Edwards took the Moet New Directors Award.

Earlier in the week, Graham King nabbed the 2010 Variety U.K. Achievement in Film Award. The “Gangs of New York” producer was interviewed by Variety’s editor Tim Gray in a Q&A sesh that had King admitting to many “gray hair” moments, including the time Martin Scorsese told him Jack Nicholson would be wearing a dildo in “The Departed.” Later, Nicholson told King: “I told you those dildos would win you an Oscar.”
