David Tennant Nominated For BAFTA Scotland Award
David Tennant has been nominated for a BAFTA Scotland award for Best Film Actor for his role as Doug in the hit black comedy What We Did On Our Holiday.
The film itself is also up for a prize in the Best Feature Film category.
What We Did On Our Holiday is a hilarious journey through an unforgettable family holiday as a couple attempts to keep their impending divorce secret from their extended family. Doug (David Tennant) and Abi (Rosamund Pike) and their three children travel to the Scottish Highlands for Doug’s father Gordie’s (Billy Connolly) birthday party, where it’s soon clear that when it comes to keeping their secret under wraps their children are their biggest liability. From nine year old Lottie’s notebook to keep track of the lies so she remembers which ones to tell, to four year old Jess’s perverse attachment to a brick named Norman, for their parents a week has never seemed such a long time. But it’s middle child Mickey and his granddad’s shared passion for Vikings which gives rise to the most far-reaching and unexpected consequences.
