On the red carpet, stars including Helen Mirren, George Clooney and his wife, Amal, wore "Je Suis Charlie" pins in solidarity for those who were killed in attacks in Paris.

Clooney, accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award, praised supporters of free speech.

"Today was an extraordinary day. There were millions of people who marched. Not just in Paris, but all over the world," Clooney said. "They didn't march in protest. They marched in support of the idea that we will not walk in fear. So, Je Suis Charlie."
