Tom Cruise poses for photographers with his Screen Icon award at the National Movie Awards at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Wednesday.

The actor was presented with the award by Gwyneth Paltrow.

'It's a real honour for me to be here tonight. This great city of London. This great country England. I've made several films here. I have been fortunate,' the Telegraph.co.uk quoted the actor as saying.

Cruise added, 'I guess as a film maker the most important thing to me is you. If I have entertained you at all, I thank you. Thank you for allowing me to do so.'

Harry Potter too won a trophy -- the family film trophy, which was presented by Orlando Bloom.

Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson were on hand to accept the award.

'It's fantastic for us, six films in with two more to go, to still be getting this kind of recognition,' Radcliffe said in his acceptance speech. He also apologised for the absence of his co-star Rupert Grint due to sickness.

Watson also said a few word of thanks. 'This is such an incredible honour. It's so wonderful that you still love these films. We still love making them.'
