  • Matt won Best Actor at the Empire Awards, which was presented to him by Paul Greengrass. A report is at the Daily Mail, a live blog at Empire, with photos at Zimbio and the collage by Republic of Photography. A post-award interview is at YouTube.

    To present Best Actor, sponsored by Jameson, it's the director of what Walliams calls "the good Bourne films", Paul Greengrass. In fairness to Doug Liman, The Bourne Identity isn't half bad.

    Michael B. Jordan may have been overlooked by the Oscars but Empire readers are a canny lot and spotted something highly nominatable in his portrayal of Adonis Johnson in Creed. Matt Damon (The Martian), Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant), Michael Fassbender (Macbeth) and Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road) are the other nominees.

    And the winner, says Greengrass, is... "Someone who literally shovelled shit for this part, the wonderful Matt Damon."

    "We literally just worked a seven-day week on the new Jason Bourne movie," says Damon. "Hopefully we didn't fuck it up." Damon laughs about The Martian's win in the Musical or Comedy category at the Golden Globes. "Maybe they didn't see it and just liked me and felt bad," he says. "Keep supporting movies! We all have jobs because of you guys." We bloody love Matt Damon.
