& # 39; Thank you very much. This is a very beautiful moment and it is very sad not to be with the cast and some of the crew to share with you tonight, but this is a wonderful achievement for the whole group, ”said Armstrong.

His speech was briefly interrupted by a phone that rang. Armstrong quipped, "Room service, probably" when Kieran Culkin was seen laughing in another video.

"But because I've been deprived of the opportunity to spend this time with our colleagues and with the cast and crew, I might like to say thank you," added Armstrong.

“I don't thank the virus for separating us all this year. I don't thank Trump for his lousy and uncoordinated response, I thank Boris Johnson and his administration for doing the same in my country, ”he added.

He added, “I thank all the nationalist and quasi-nationalist governments around the world that are exactly the opposite of what we need right now, and thank the media moguls who are doing so much to keep them in power. So don't thank you, ”he concluded.

After the ceremony ended, Armstrong revealed his solemn plans in the UK to have breakfast.
