But, the even turned out to be a platform for Ghanian producer Charles Thompson to launch a scathing attack on the U.K. film industry. Thompsion said that U.K is having a "drain on black talent" since black actors are heading for the U.S. to get decent acting roles. He pointed to Thandie Newton and Marianne Jean-Baptiste as examples of British stars, who have moved to America for the sake of their careers.
