Actor Michael Douglas was the toast of the GQ Awards in London on Tuesday night as he was crowned Legend of the Year.

A week after his separation from wife Catherine Zeta-Jones was announced, a solo Douglas was beaming as he picked up the accolade at the publication’s annual Men of the Year ceremony, held at the Royal Opera House in the British capital.

Douglas, who flew in from the Venice Film Festival in Italy, was handed the prize by Samuel L. Jackson, while Sir Elton John was given the Genius award by terminally-ill rocker Wilko Johnson, and Doctor Who actor Matt Smith handed Noel Gallagher the Icon trophy.

Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens picked up Most Stylish Man, Pharrell Williams got lucky landing Performer of the Year, rockers Arctic Monkeys nabbed Band of the Year and Lou Reed was hailed the Inspiration of the Year.

Accepting her trophy for Woman of the Year, former Harry Potter actress Emma Watson joked, “Given the perilousness in the journey from child star to adult, any award with woman in the title is frankly a relief!”

Watson’s My Week with Marilyn co-star Eddie Redmayne was also feted, taking home the Breakthrough Award, while Simon Pegg and Nick Frost were crowned the Comedians of the Year, and newsman Piers Morgan nabbed TV Personality of the Year.
