Tearful Eddie Redmayne Dedicates BAFTA Win To His “Three Families”

After winning a Golden Globe and now a BAFTA, “The Theory Of Everything” star Eddie Redmayne is all set for Oscars.

After winning a Golden Globe last month, Eddie Redmayne took home the Best Actor award at this year's British Academy Film Awards.

The Theory of Everything actor gave an emotional speech as he thanked and dedicated his win to his "three families", including his own family, his professional family and the family of Stephen Hawking.

Describing it as the “best night” of his life, Redmayne broke down in tears and remembered the “worst night of his life” at the 2013’s BAFTAs when he had to leave the ceremony before presenting an award, due to severe food poisoning.

"Thank you. I was lucky enough to come to the BAFTAs a year or three ago and I was suffering a bout of food poisoning and I had to bolt through the door and redecorated the walls of the ROH, which was one of the worst nights of my life," he told the crowd.
