Karen Bryson said: "There is no stopping creatives. And these past fifteen months have proven that we don't really save lives but we kind of do. Because without a book, a CD, something to watch, these times would have been so much harder."
Tamara Orlova, the founder of the awards also took to the stage to encourage comedians to create more comedy. "With four absolutely different spoofs on Nomadland, and two different takes to The Mauritanian, it goes to show how different we all are. The diversity of our experiences seeps through into your work making it absolutely unique. To me it tells that while there is always a competition, there is always place for more comedy."
