DIARY: No 'Glittering Prize' for Working Title Films as Nabs' trophy is stolen

There's nothing like a bit of hard graft and sweat to make eventually winning a prize a real triumph. So when industry bods got together to pit their wits in aid of the recent Nabs music quiz, the eventual winners, Working Title Films, deserved their bounty fair and square.

The following day Nabs sent out a note congratulating the rightful winners, who were doubtless thrilled with their intellectual conquest. But all was not well with the world, as the note continued: "The trophy was a special one as, at some point during the frivolities, it sprung some legs and walked away! If anyone has any information as to where it may have wandered off to, we would be grateful if you would let us know."

Well, look no further Nabs, as Campaign has been contacted by the evil villains who pilfered said object on the night. Using the classic ruse of a beauty as a honey trap to distract attention from the deed at hand, the kidnappers successfully completed their heist.

But rather than altruistically delivering said silver to its rightful owners, the rogues in question have trussed up the bounty and are holding it ransom. "If Working Title want the trophy back then they give £100 to Nabs. Otherwise we'll send it back in bits, the threatening blackmailer said menacingly, in a muffled voice through his balaclava.

So will Working Title put their money where their mouth is and front up the cash? We'll have to wait and see.
