Please welcome! Russell Brand and Dame Helen Mirren! "Bon soir," she says, because we need some class in this joint. Then we have a whole business about how she speaks in French and Russell Brand "hilariously" translates her and Colin Firth laughs in the audience, so it must not have been too bad, but I was too embarrassed to listen.

WINNAHHHHHHHHHH. "BLOODY ELL. WHAT A ROOM FULL OF WONDERFUL TALENTED PEOPLE AND WHAT AM I DOING HERE." He and his strangely reddish beard are incredibly happy and poised, comparatively, and just cheerfully go through his huge list of people to thank. "Melissa... I'm not gonna drop the F bomb like she did... I've done that plenty. Micky and Dicky, where's my quacker! He's got a wonderful story, and I can't wait to see the rest of his story. If you need to fight, dickyeklund.com, he deserves it." And then he tears up when he gets to his wife and daughter. AWWWWW.
