“The Full Monty” was voted the funniest comedy film of all time by British moviegoers in the “Lafta” awards, announced Monday. (The British Oscars are called “Bafta” awards.) “Monty” star Hugo Spears accepted the award just before the London premiere of the British comedy “Waking Ned Devine.” Rowan Atkinson was voted best comedy actor for “Mr. Bean” and Cameron Diaz best comedy actress for “There’s Something About Mary.” The prize for most daring outfit at a film premiere went to “It” girl Tamara Beckwith, who showed up for the opening of the Isaac Mizrahi documentary “Unzipped” wearing what the British Press Association called “visible turquoise knickers and a lap dog.” Another “best comedy moment at a film premiere” was awarded to “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” star Nick Moran, who punched out a photographer for trying to move him out of the way so he could photograph a bigger celebrity.
