Accepting the Best Picture award, Alfonso said: "This bunch of Mexicans are not as bad as sometimes they are portrayed."

He also thanked Netflix for "bringing this film to the people in the mainstream."

‘Vice’ scooped three wins, for Best Hair and Best Make-Up, as well as Best Actor and Best Actor in a Comedy for lead star Christian Bale, who portrays former US Vice President Dick Cheney.

As he accepted the Comedy honour, the actor of the film: "Time sort of allows it to be considered a comedy but it’s really a tragedy."

He also hailed the movie a "love story" to the United States and thanked the country – which he moved to when he was just 17 years old – for the opportunities it had brought him.

He ended the speech with a shout out to late musician Louis Armstrong, adding: "Because why not, right? He’s just a beautiful man."

And when he picked up the Best Actor prize, the 44-year-old star was very grateful.
