In his speech, Fox spoke eloquently about cinema's magic to bring people together and "change your life."


The appearance brought the audience to their feet for a lengthy standing ovation, many with tears for the actor living with Parkinson's.

Fox has made very few public appearances since his Parkinson’s diagnosis in the 1990s, making his Baftas moment more poignant.


A documentary about Michael J Fox's experiences with Parkinson's disease, Still, was nominated but lost at the Baftas.
