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.
