I: Interviewer
N: Barry Norman
B: Billy Boyd

I: sharing the studio space tonight, hello to Barry Norman, Hannah Waterman, but more on your top story I am delighted to welcome Billy Boyd, who stars as Pippin the Hobbit in Lord of the Rings. Hello

B: hello

I: congratulations I suppose. Thatís the biggest word for you today

B: yeah yeah it was a great night

I: did you go? [to the Baftas]

B: yeah I was there

I: right and where were you with the lord of the rings guys in the back or something?

B: Yeah. Well we were kind of stage right and a few rows back

I: did you enjoy it, the whole ceremony?

B: I did actually, I thought it was great yeah. There were some really funny moments and some touching moments. Yeah I thought it was great

I: Barry and I were talking and we thought it was a little bit boring. We might get in trouble for saying that

N: [slags off the baftas a bit + says sorry to Billy]

B: no not at all

N: blabs on a bit (he really annoys me so I couldnít be bothered to transcribe his bit)

I: ok well lets take a look at what youíre doing in lord of the rings Billy

B: ok great  

MINES OF MORIA TRAILER CLIP

I: I was just looking at your hair there

B: yeah?

I: did you have a wig then?

B: yeah that was a wig

I: just wanted to check

B: yeah we won an award for that last night

I: yeah? Well exactly

B: not for that wig I think all wigs

I: that was the winning wig

B: [laughs manically]

I: so I suppose you could go to awards ceremonies for the next 30 yrs, you could be in Belgium in 2007 at the DVD awards waving because once youíve won an award thatís it

B: is it? [laughs] I donít know if Iíd go to that many. I think thatís as Barry was saying they would get to yours after a while. It was really good fun last night because the movie was up for quite a lot of awards, and weíre all really proud of it. So itís an exciting night for us and a lot of people I havenít seen for a yr + Ĺ were there

I: I suppose it might be boring if your not winning

B: yeah it would be more than boring it would be rubbish [laughs]

I: it must be galling. Imagine if you were there last night and it had been Harry potter again and again and again.

B: Iím sure it must be but there are all sorts of different depths to it as I say. Your meeting people you havenít seen for ages because they are up for awards so its really exciting to see them and theyíve put so much work into it and itís great people are recognizing that and silly things like having your family there and itís just a good, fun night out

HOLLYWOOD LINK UP ABOUT OSCARS

B: ah, they do their job

I: Billy are you looking forward to the Oscars?

B: yeah a really exciting night yeah

B: erm

B: yeah then yeah I am!! [laughs] itís a strange sort of world you can get sweep up in I think if you donít watch what your doing. Youíve got to make sure you know where u stand

N: they are all aliens in la, itís a different planet

I: any plans for a single coming out?

B: I only started watching it [pop idol] quiet near the end when there was 4 left or something but he [will] does seem to be steering it the way he wants it. It seems to be that way.

That was the last thing Billy said + the show ended a few minutes later.
