Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe beat 007 Daniel Craig to win the Best Performance – Male at the first ever National Movie Awards in London on Friday night.
The award – like the other other five categories – was voted for by British film fans.
Radcliffe, 18, told whatsontv.co.uk before the ceremony that he had little chance against the James Bond star, despite the huge popularity of the Harry Potter films.
But after winning the award he said backstage that he was flabbergasted to beat Craig, an actor he looked up to.
The award was presented to the humble teenager by Oscar winner Dame Helen Mirren, who said backstage that Radcliffe ‘didn’t need any advice, he understands [the industry] already’.
The other nominees in the Best Performance – Male category included Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), also for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and Johnny Depp, for Pirates of the Carribean: At World’s End.
