3 films vie for Scottish BAFTA

Mullan, McKinnon, Mackenzie compete for helmer kudos

EDINBURGH — Peter Mullan’s “Neds,” Morag McKinnon’s “Donkeys” and David Mackenzie’s “Perfect Sense” have been nominated for best film at the BAFTA Scotland Awards.

Mullan, McKinnon and Mackenzie are also in the running for best director, while Mullan is nominated for best writer alongside Colin McLaren for “Donkeys” and David Kane for the BBC1 drama “Field of Blood.”

Conor McCarron, the youthful lead in “Neds,” is competing for the best film actor prize against James Cosmo and Brian Pettifer for “Donkeys.”

“Field of Blood” dominates the TV acting nominations, with nods for the drama’s three co-stars, Peter Capaldi, Jayd Johnson and Ford Kiernan.

Despite that, the show missed out on a nomination for best TV drama, with nods going to “Case Histories,” “Garrow’s Law” and “Hattie.”

Nominees for best single documentary went to Mark Cousins for “The First Movie,” Sue Bourne for “Jig” and Charlie Russell for “Terry Pratchet: Choosing to Die.”

The winners will be announced Nov. 13 at a ceremony in Glasgow.
