Mick Jagger delivered the top prize to Slumdog Millionaire at Sunday’s 2009 British Academy Film Awards — but also the best line of the evening, people.com reports.

Explaining what he was doing at a movie event the same night as the Grammys, the Rolling Stone said he was part of a rock star-movie star exchange program. “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.”

Sitting in the audience with fellow nominee Angelina Jolie, Pitt cracked up and applauded along with the rest of the crowd.
