The Screen Nation Film & TVAwards returns for it’s annual ceremony dedicated to celebrating outstanding achievements and diversity on the British screen.

Hosted by actor Wil Johnson (Waking the Dead) and presenter Sarah Jane Crawford, this year’s prestigious event takes place on Sunday, November 11, 2012, at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge.

Having built a reputation as the UK’s only international Awards ceremony recognising the achievements of culturally diverse talent working in film and television, the 8th annual event again celebrates British talent as well as stars from around the world with a star studded award ceremony, live entertainment and after show party.

Past award recipients include Hollywood legends Morgan Freeman and Danny Glover as well as top tier UK talent, Sir Trevor McDonald OBE, Thandie Newton, Naomi Harris, Angela Griffin and Noel Clarke.

The Screen Nation Film & TV Awards was founded by Charles Thompson MBE, an Independent film producer with over 20 years experience in the UK film & TV industry. “I am delighted as always to be able to celebrate and reward some of the very best talents that Britian has to offer and I am very proud as they are to be making a contribution to the continued development of cultural diversity in this important year,” Mr Thompson said.

2012 is a special year for the event, as it marks the 50th year of Independence of both Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago giving extra cause for celebration.

Screen Nation will play host to some exclusive events in the run up to the awards show, including a gala screening of The Harder They Come, the offcial UK premiere of the Jamaican hit movie Better Mus Come and the new Digital-is Awards.

The full list of categories and much sought after nominations were revealed a few days ago, and are all embedded below; you'll certainly recognize many of these names and titles, as we've written about a lot of them; but it also gives me some new names and titles to look up.

Voting for Public Voting categories starts midnight Tues 9th Oct and ends midnight Tues 6th Nov. Vote NOW for a chance to win tickets to attend the awards!
