Tom Hiddleston has already won world-wide critical acclaim for his role in the BBC thriller Night Manager and has also achieved an Emmy nomination for 'Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or a Movie' for the same.
So when Hiddleston won UK's TV Choice Award for Best Actor, he was really thrilled but apologetic that he couldn't be there in person to receive the award because he was filming Thor: Ragnarok in Australia.
A video of him accepting the award was posted on Twitter, where Hiddleston can be seen talking about it — but his co-stars Idris Elba and Chris Hemsworth disrupted his apologetic speech about him not being there in person.
Hemsworth first pops over to accept the award on behalf of Home and Away, a soap he appeared in before his days as Thor.
Then, Elba joined the interruption to ask why Luther (Hugh Laurie) didn’t get a nomination. He tells his British friend, “Hugh, you were amazing in The Night Manager” and says 'hi' to his mother.
Before long, Hiddleston has adopted the look of a man resigned to sharing the spotlight.

But this isn't the first time Hiddleston's co-stars have made fun of him.
When he turned to Instagram for the promotion of Thor: Ragnarok, Hiddleston got a welcome from none other than Robert Downey Jr. or Tony Stark, the 'Iron Man', when he posted this photo on Instagram welcoming Loki to the world of vintage filters:
Re-posting a blurry paparazzi photo from Hiddleston’s now-infamous Rhode Island romp (with Taylor Swift), Downey Jr. placed tongue firmly in cheek and wrote, “Join me in welcoming the biggest T. Stark fan of them all to Instagram! @twhiddleston.” Yes, 'T.S.' stands for Tony Stark of course. Loki loves Tony Stark and all is well in the Marvel Universe. Downey Jr. followed it up with this' I heart Loki' photo a week later:
Hiddleston will be reprising the role of Thor's evil step brother in Thor: Ragnarok which will release on 25 October 2017.
