Upon accepting their awards, Murphy, Downey Jr., and Kenneth Branagh—accepting on behalf of the cast—thanked their colleagues for the recognition. “Twenty-eight years ago when I was trying to become an actor…I felt extremely like an interloper,” Murphy said upon accepting the best actor award, “looking out on all of you guys here today, I know I’m part of something truly wonderful,”

Branagh highlighted the cast’s solidarity with the Writers Guild of America’s strike, We went from the red carpet,” Branagh explained, citing the cast’s decision to walk off the red carpet of their world premiere last year, “we didn’t see the film that night, we happily went in the direction of solidarity with your good selves, so this is a full circle moment for us,”
