The 2010 Empire Award Ceremony is currently underway in London tonight . Empire Awards are the only film awards to be voted for entirely by British fans and Hobbits :) .Its with great pleasure I can announce that Sir Ian McKellen has been awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award (2010 Empire Icon) in honour of his contribution to the movie industry.
"I couldn't be more surprised or delighted. Middle-earth rejoices!" Sir Ian told Sky News's reporters that are currently on the red carpet.
Congratulation Sir Ian ! A well deserved award for the one and only Gandalf.
