Mick Jagger delivered the top prize – to the evening's big winner, Slumdog Millionaire – and the best line of the evening – about Brad Pitt – at Sunday's 2009 British Academy Film Awards.

"Sir Anthony Hopkins is in the recording studio with Amy Winehouse," joked Jagger, "and we are hoping that next week Sir Brad and all the Pitt family will be performing The Sound of Music at the Brit awards."
