  Gollum star named best Brit actor
Updated 05 February 2004, 08.10

LOTR star Andy Serkis has made movie history after picking up a best actor gong at the Empire Film Awards.

Andy's award for Best British Actor was remarkable because he plays a computer-generated character - Gollum.

Andy had been tipped for an Oscar nomination. He didn't get one in the end, but this helped to make up for it. He said he was "very happy".

LOTR picked up Best Film for the third year running for the final movie in the trilogy, Return Of The King.

Former EastEnders star Martine McCutcheon picked up the Best Newcomer gong for her role in Love Actually.

Star-studded

The star-studded ceremony was held at London's swanky Dorchester Hotel.

The winners were chosen by the readers of Empire, which is a well-known film magazine.
