Madonna - Hamish Hamilton Wins Bafta Craft Award

The man behind Madonna and Beyonce's Super Bowl half-time shows has scooped a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) Craft Award for his directing work.

Hamish Hamilton has established himself as one of the world's top big show directors, overseeing the Oscars, the MTv Video Music Awards and concerts for Neil Diamond, U2, Robbie Williams, the Rolling Stones, the Spice Girls and Christina Aquilera.

Now the 46-year-old Brit is to be honoured with a special award at the Bafta Craft Awards next month (Apr13).

He says, "(I'm) surprised and a little emotional... It is great to be recognised for work that surrounds me with so many talented friends."

Hamilton also took charge of the Tv broadcasts of the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

British actor Stephen Mangan has signed up to host the 2013 Craft Awards, which recognise behind-the-scenes talent, in the U.K. capital on 28 April (13).
