Many congrats guys. I know Jason really wanted to make it to the show this year, and I know now he'll be double gutted he didn't make it. But I guess the trophy will ease the pain!

Congrats also to Danny Van Belle for his winning film - AWESOME.

I was sad that Alex Kirkbride's American Waters didn't win the picture book prize, although I have not yet seen the book that won.
