He scooped the prize for his portrayal of Bruce Robertson in the movie adaptation of Irvine Welsh's novel Filth.

Presented his prize by Kate Beckinsale, McAvoy said: "You're faced with a quandary when you're nominated for an award; do you come up with a speech or not?

"I've opted not, but I love you all."

Other winners included Arnold Schwarzenegger for lifetime achievement, Steve Coogan's Alpha Papa for Best Comedy and Simon Pegg was named Empire Hero.
