The winners of the 20th South Bank Sky Arts Awards were announced at a ceremony today.

Eddie Izzard was presented with the Outstanding Achievement award by Lenny Henry, joining previous winners from Tracey Emin to J.K Rowling.

He works across such a wide waterfront with an unmatchable, often uncatchable style and wit.  We're delighted that he joins the ranks of those who have won this Outstanding Achievement Award.”
The Theatre award went to the Royal Court’s production of Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen and was collected by one of the stars, Reece Shearsmith.
