“A stutter is like an imposing person that lives in your body and never pays rent.”

Robbie received the Producer of the Year gong, alongside her husband Tom Ackerley and fellow producer Josey McNamara, for their company LuckyChap Entertainment.

Robbie said on the red carpet: “I don’t have a lot of voices at the moment but we really believe (in) people with original ideas and voices, people like Emerald (Fennell) with Saltburn and Greta (Gerwig ) with Barbie.

“They are both such visionary directors with such original voices and they had such an original vision for the story they wanted to tell and committing to it while waiting for it to come out can seem scary, but when you do, Amazing things are happening.”

Lily Gladstone, who currently appears in Martin Scorsese’s latest film, Killers Of The Flower Moon, was also honored.

She won her award for championing the rights of indigenous women, and her co-star Leonardo DiCaprio said: “I fervently hope that we are entering a new era in which actors like Lily, who embody that authenticity and truth undeniable in their own narrative, will take center stage.

“Because Lily is not only an actress, she is also an activist.”
