“There would always be like two other guys that I was up against and we’d always lose to this one kid,” said Phoenix of DiCaprio, who was nominated for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

“No actor would ever say his name. Like every casting director would say: [whispering] ‘It’s Leonardo, it’s Leonardo!’ You’ve been an inspiration for over 25 years to me and so many people, I thank you very, very, very much.”

Of Bale, who starred in”Ford vs Ferrari,” Phoenix said “you commit to roles in a way that I can only dream of.

“You never turn in a bad performance. It’s infuriating. I wish you would, just one time, just suck once, ok?”

This is Phoenix's first SAG Award following four previous nominations.
