“And the winner is… The king,” Noel Gallagher of Oasis announced, referring to Bowie as he held the mic up toward heaven.
Then Jones, who’s directed films like “Warcraft: The Beginning,” “Source Coud” and “Moon,” gave a heartfelt message that tugged on the heartstrings of every Bowie fan in the audience.
“I lost my dad last year, but I also became a dad and I was spending a lot of time, after getting over the shock, of trying to work out what would I want my son to know about his granddad,” Jones told the audience. “And I think it would be the same thing that most of my dad’s fans have taken over the last 50 years: That he’s always been there supporting people who think they’re a little bit weird or a little bit strange – a little bit different. And he’s always been there for them. So this award is for all the kooks and all the people who make the kooks.”
Wooo… I think I have something in my eye.
