Best Actor was awarded to Tom Hanks, who in age-old fashion couldn't be at the awards due to his being on-location in Fiji shooting new flick, Castaway. So on behalf of Hanks, up once again stepped Phil Jupitus who accepted the award on his behalf. And the usual onslaught of photographers - used to snapping the award and its winner - were treated to Jupitus coyly placing the award on the floor by itself, while he pranced around it like a humble showgirl showing it off.
