Emma Thompson is no stranger to being the subject of an eccentric and fawning speech from a fellow Hollywood A-lister (See: Meryl Streep) but Bryan Cranston, AKA Breaking Bad's Walter White, decided to take it upon himself to ensure that the 2014 awards season would be one that the Saving Mr Banks actress would never forget. Cranston regaled the audience with a tale of when he saw Thompson at a recent banquet. "She was looking my way and [then] she came up to me and I lost it, I didn't know what to say," the star-struck actor revealed.

"The only thing that got me through was imagining, dreaming that one day I could actually make a living as an actor and that's what got me through - thank God!" the former Malcolm in the Middle star yelled.
