Watch: Daniel Radcliffe Receives "Rear of the Year"

Now this is an award we'd love to see handed out on television.

It was announced just three days ago that this Daniel Radcliffe was the winner of this year's Rear of the Year, a cheeky honor that has been handed out for about four decades in the U.K. to celebrate the best British butts.

"I've been campaigning for years," Radcliffe joked with me at Comic-Con, where he was promoting his upcoming horror thriller Victor Frankenstein (in theaters Nov. 25). "It's a thing we do it in England. You don't do it in America, because I was going to say, if you don't do it here in America, maybe my awards counts kind of globally."

With that we gave Radcliffe the opportunity to give his acceptance speech.

"Thank you to everyone who voted for me for Rear of the Year," he said. "It's a very prestigious honor. I promise to...get it out a lot more in the future."

Radcliffe has bared his butt in indie films, including during a sex scene in Kill Your Darlings, and on Broadway in Equus (he actually went full monty for that one!).

He beat out Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan and tennis champion Andy Murray for Rear of the Year.

Rear of the Year for a female went to actress Kym Marsh.
