Dougray Scott for Tom Cruise:
"I was going to try and pretend to be Tom Cruise and walk away with the award but knew that was never going to work because he's much, much taller than me. Tom's very, very sorry he's not been able to be here because he's been playing with his very large sword in New Zealand."

"Well, thank thank you very much. I'm here in beautiful New Zealand just finished a nice shoot on The Last Samurai - lots of sweating and fighting today, so I'm thinking of you all over there and thank you so much for this honour - it's much appreciated. It's a very special film Minority Report to me because I got the opportunity to work with Steven Spielberg, a thing which we've been talking about for many, many years. I'm really honoured. So enjoy. Thank you, Good night."
