Any Way The Wind Blows the debut feature by singer songwriter Tom Barman won two awards: Best Actress (Nathalie Broods) and Best music (Tom Barman).

Best Flemish TV-Comedy is Het Peulengaleis by Bart Peeters and Hugo Mathysen. Best TV-actress and TV-actor both went to actors from Het Peulengaleis, Tine Embrechts and Warre Borgmans.

The Joseph Plateau Ceremony is an organization of the Flanders International Film Festival Ghent. 'There used to be a lot of confusion between the Joseph Plateau Awards for Best Belgian Films and the awards that are handed out during the festival for winners in the feature film competition 'The Impact Of Music On Film. That's why last year we choose to have the ceremony no longer in the framework of the October festival', explains secretary general of the festival Jacques Dubrulle.
