Gerard Butler and Guy Ritchie celebrate at the awards

The Acceptance Speech
Guy Ritchie: "Thank you very much indeed. There's not much more I'll say because Gerry Butler is the eloquent one among us, so Gerry, perhaps you'd like to say a couple of words but just before you do, the Warner Bros team, thank you very much for doing the job that you all did. Empire readers, thank you very much indeed, Empire thank you very much indeed. Gerry Butler, you're on."

Butler: "This was supposed to be Guy speaking but as usual he dumped it on me. Listen, I want to thank Guy who really wrote all the words and directed all the stuff and did a great job and it's about time he got SOMETHING right... you did put me up here you bastard!"

Ritchie: (chases Butler away from the mike)"That's quite enough out of you Gerry."

Mark Strong: "It's over Ger, that's it, your time's up. It's great that people who know about movies and love movies decided to vote this Best British Film; thank you very much."
