Award speeches are generally self-indulgent and about thanking people we don't know and probably won't Google. But they're actually moments where celebrities are broadcasted to the whole world with no script.

Realising his wife was trapped in their home, he ignored the advice of professionals, who told him to wait for the army to arrive to provide search and rescue.
