Sam Riley wins Rising Star Award for Control

I'm pleased to hear Sam Riley (formal singer of 10,000 Things) has won the Rising Star Award at this year's Richard Attenborough Film Awards for his portrayal of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis in the film Control directed by Anton Corbijn.

The Rising Star award is decided by arts and entertainment journalists working for local papers, websites and broadcasters all over the country. "For the first time, the awards have been dedicated to Lord Attenborough who, for more than six decades, has served the British film industry non-stop as actor, producer, director and all-round champion."

Control is released on DVD on January 11th in the UK and Anton Corbijn will be signing copies of the book 'In Control' on February 11th from 6pm at HMV, Oxford Street, London.

Here's a little Joy Division to keep Thursday moving.
