MOON, for us the best film of 2009, won a BAFTA for director Duncan Jones for outstanding debut by a British writer, director or producer at last night's awards bash.

This might seem like a fringe category shoehorned in to make sure that British talent wins something (mainly because it is), but the fact is that the film should have been vying for major awards like Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor etc especially over the likes of AVATAR and DISTRICT 9, both of which were entertaining but not a patch on the intelligent, mesmerising, stunning MOON.

So, well done Duncan, you deserved better and more, but be consoled by the fact that your film is the better one and won the Sci Fi Freak's award the Golden Freakie, for best film of 2009.
