Over the years he has received a number of prestigious awards, which showcase his accomplishments as a talented actor. In 1997 he won Satellite TV's Personality of the Year from Satellite TV Europe Magazine. In 1998, GQ Magazine named Jones Man of the Year. He was awarded Best Actor for Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels at the Odeon Audience Awards, and also won the award for Outstanding New Talent from the Sir James Carreras Award Variety Club of GB.
