“Wouldn’t we have more respect for them, if someone who came back to mission control had the courage to stand up and say – ‘let’s put this on hold until peace is restored in Ukraine. This back-slapping and awarding is ridiculous’. “

Last weekend, the Independence Spirit Awards took place in Los Angeles – where celebrities spoke out against Russia and Vladimir Putin’s actions at the event.

Actor Jason Isaacs, who was nominated for his role in Mass, confessed that he struggled to see the point of the awards ceremonies at the same time as the current conflict.

He said: “I’m sure, like a lot of people, I’ve had a lot of thought about coming and I thought, well, inside this tent are storytellers who want to use cinema for its intended purpose. That’s the motivation to empathize.

“And if there’s one moment where stories matter, it’s a moment of great crisis.”
