In fact.. No one but Sauron, Isildur, Gollum, Bilbo and Frodo (all in turn) ever touches the Ring in the movie, as it should be. Boromir holds the Ring at one point by its chain, but he never touches it. Galadriel, Gandalf, Boromir, Aragorn and the Witch King of Angmar is all very close, but neither gets so close as to actually touching it. Gimli breaks his ax over it too.. something he didn't do in the book. He wasn't even present at the council of Elrond in Rivendell.
