Jamie Bell — the teenage star of Billy Elliot — beat out Tom Hanks, Geoffrey Rush and Russell Crowe for the best actor statue at Sunday night's British Academy Film Awards, Britain's equivalent of the Oscars. Gladiator won Best Film and Ang Lee was named best director for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Julia Roberts picked up best actress honors for Erin Brockovich, and supporting acting kudos went to Julie Walters (Billy Elliot) and Benicio Del Toro (Traffic).
