He said: "I am truly humbled by this because it comes from my fellow actors.

"When I was 15 I was lucky enough to get a film called 'This Boy's Life' and after that I watched as many films as I could and it gave me a such a respect for this craft.

"I was in awe of the performances and I was inspired. To any young actors, I encourage you to watch the history of cinema because we stand on the shoulders of giants.

"My parents, thank you for listening to an overly ambitions, slightly annoying 13-year-old kid who wanted to go on auditions after school, I would not be here without you."

But once Amy Poehler and Tina Fey got to the stage to present Carol Burnett with SAG's Life Achievement award, the funny duo used the opportunity to make a quip about Leo.

Amy said: "Let's all calm down about Leonardo DiCaprio and how hard it was to shoot 'The Revenant'. So you slept in a horse and ate bison liver, big whoop. Carol would have slept in that horse, worn it, done a song and a dance, and made a much funnier face after eating something very disgusting."
