McConaughey's "Dallas Buyers Club" co-star Jared Leto accepted the award on his behalf. "Matthew happens to be one of the few actors working today," he said. McConaughey tried to say something through Leto's cell phone, but the 30 Seconds to Mars' frontman had to cut it short because McConaughey sounded garbled.

Larson, who beat Cate Blanchett among others for the award, said in her acceptance speech, "I was not expecting this." She thanked some people, including her stepdad "for floating me money when I couldn't pay the rent."

"I cherished working with him and I'll miss him forever," he said of his "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" co-star. "Tony Soprano didn't come easy to him. He couldn't turn it on and off, and he sometimes resisted going to the places he needed to go."

Lee Daniels, meanwhile, launched an expletive when he tried to calm the noisy crowd as he paid tribute to Forest Whitaker. "The Butler" director told the audience, "Forest would like to hear all you talking through my speech, so shut the f**k up."
