“I am so saddened that I can not be here with you this evening. An hour and a half ago, I became violently ill right as I was about to leave the Miramar hotel for the theatre. I was so looking forward to accepting this incredible honour in person, and to not be here on stage with Adam is deeply disappointing, to say the least,” a note from the actress said which was read on stage.

Meanwhile, Driver spoke of “collaboration” during his speech.

“Acting to me is many things. It’s a craft. It’s a political act. Unfortunately, it’s a business, and it’s a service. I think acting is a service industry. I’m there in service of the director, the actors and the crew, and the story overall, which is more important. I very much believe in that. I believe in the potential effect of great collaboration.”

“Marriage Story” is on Netflix now.
