"They told me I only had 45 seconds this year, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week."

The actor also thanked his fellow star, Leonardo Di Caprio, calling him fantastic.

"Rest of the cast and crew, I also want to say it’s time we give it to our stunt co-ordinators. I'm not one to look back, but this is for all the wonderful people I've met. This is for my kids, I adore you."



Meanwhile, Laura Dern was named best supporting actress for playing a formidable divorce lawyer in “Marriage Story.” It was her first win.
