PHOTOS: David Tennant Attends Dinner To Honour Olivia Colman With BFI Fellowship


David Tennant attended a dinner to honour his friend and Broadchurch co-star Olivia Colman with a BFI fellowship last night.

The award honours Olivia’s very special contribution to television and film, and is in recognition of her distinctive and prodigious acting talents and the huge impact she has on audiences all over the world.

“I’m absolutely bowled over,” said Olivia. “The BFI is a wonderful organisation and that I will soon be in a Fellowship with so many of my heroes is an honour that is hard to compute. Thank you a thousand times, I really am thrilled. THANK YOU!’

BFI Chair Josh Berger said: “I am thrilled the BFI is giving its highest honour, the BFI Fellowship, to Olivia Colman, at such an exciting point in her career. Olivia is a brilliant comic actor and one of the industry’s finest dramatic performers. Her ability to be relatable in such a diverse range of roles generates incredible warmth and admiration from audiences. The Favourite is firmly up there as one of the best films of recent years and showcases Olivia’s extraordinary and nuanced performance, which is fittingly being acknowledged by critics and audiences all over the world.”

Olivia will be joining the distinguished ranks of other BFI Fellows including Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Vanessa Redgrave, Helena Bonham Carter, Cate Blanchett, Martin Scorsese, Jeanne Moreau, Stephen Frears, Steve McQueen, Peter Morgan, John Hurt and Hugh Grant.
