“Thank you. It’s a great honor,” Downey said. “As your hero, I want you to know I would never, ever, consider using this moment to crassly promote an upcoming movie…. Will you please enjoy this very special world premiere of the new trailer for Sherlock Holmes?”

Downey wasn’t the only winner who unveiled his latest trailer. Cage showed “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance,” Radcliffe introduced “The Woman In Black.” Trailers were also shown for “Piranha 3DD” and “Paranormal 3.”

The show was punctuated with circus-worthy acts such as aerialists, fire dancers and contortionists who performed inside floating plastic balls. There were also plenty of stars and special effects.

The most anticipated movie was “The Dark Knight Rises,” and stars Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt took the stage to thank fans for the honor. Bradley Cooper accepted an award for “Limitless” and J.J. Abrams was on hand to take a sci-fi prize for “Super 8.”

When Darren Aronofsky accepted the best director award, a massive black swan floated by in the lake behind him. Peter Dinklage is in Croatia shooting “Game of Thrones,” but he somehow managed to accept the supporting actor award from underwater.
