'Home and Away rocks'
Last night Tom Hiddleston was awarded ‘Best Actor’ at the TV Choice Awards, for his role in The Night Manager – and he accepted it with a little (unplanned) help from his friends. In case you’re not as hopelessly in love with him as we are, here’s 12 reasons he’s our man crush of 2016.
Filming his acceptance speech started out well for Tom, who apologised that he couldn’t be at the Dorchester Hotel in London to accept the award. He’s currently in Australia filming Thor: Ragnarok – a good enough excuse if you ask us. The film will be released in UK cinemas on the 27th October 2017, so we’ve got a little while to wait for our next Tom Hiddleston/Chris Hemsworth film fix.
That’s when poor old Tom was, ah, interrupted – But fortunately he managed to see the funny side of things.
First, Chris Hemsworth popped up: ‘Oh, is that for us?’ he asked, taking the award from Tom. ‘It’s for Home and Away, yeah? For all the work I did on that? Thanks everyone on Channel 7, I loved working on Home and Away…’
Then their co-star, Idris Elba, appeared and joined in with the joke – ‘Oh man, that’s really awful’ he said, taking the award and looking pretty unimpressed by it. ‘What’s this for? How come Luther didn’t get nominated?’ He also didn’t miss the opportunity to give a shout out to his nearest and dearest: ‘Alright, mum, how you doing?’
‘Home and Away rocks!’ Chris said at the end of the clip.
We can only imagine the other pranks that get pulled while these guys are on set together, and are sure that Tom will get his own back.
