Steve Coogan, who joked about being a young turk with a pager on his belt 25 years ago, presented Outstanding Debut to a surprised Kieran Evans for Kelly + Victor.
“I was definitely not expecting this,” said Evans. He thanked producer Janine Marmot for sticking by him for eight years,
as well as Warp’s Peter Carlton and Robin Gutch, plus Colin Burch and Julia Short at Verve.
He also thanked the city of Liverpool for inspiring the film. He thanked his mum for introducing him to Hitchcock films and his dad for driving him to art college.
