And The Winners Are...

The ballot is in and the votes have been counted. The winners of our first-ever British Action Academy Action Awards are now ready to be revealed. 

A lot of award ceremonies have been in the news recently, in particular, the Academy Awards, but even there, Brad Pitt, who by the way won an award for playing a stunt performer, gave a shout out to the stunt community. 

At the moment all this is just talking, and until the governing bodies of these awards decide that stunt performers finally should get the recognition they deserve we will have to continue to celebrate Action performances in our own way. 

So without further adieu here are the winners of the inaugural Action Awards...
