Martin Compston, who shot to fame after he was plucked from obscurity to play the lead role in Greenock-set Sweet 16, presented the award.
McAvoy was in Glasgow to present an award at the when he spoke about his favourite shows.
Laverty still remembers his first dealings with Compston as he prepared for his first film.
She said: "Unfortunately, we're not nominated in the same category". I remember asking him how many times he had been sent off for his football team in the last season.
He said: "I manage to watch River City now and again and I'm highly delighted that Still Game is back with a few marvellous additions, it has to be said. I think even Sam and I sort of missed - especially in the beginning because it was so heavy on the politics - I think we were all missing those more intimate moments", the Golden Globe-nominated actress spilled. Without getting into specifics, it has been maintained that while Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) will have their reunion sometime in the installment after two decades of being apart, fans will have to suck it up with the two living their separate lives.
Fans of Jamie, played by Sam Heughan, who are hoping to see more him need not worry, since Gabaldon says that Jamie's story coincides with Gabaldon's version in the book.
Outlander's Caitriona Balfe triumphed over Ashley Jensen and Annie Wallace to win the TV actress prize.
