Actor Bill Pullman won an award and then accidentally broke it moments later

He recovered well.

When it comes to rousing speeches in famous films, very few stirring words are as fondly remembered as Bill Pullman's effort in Independence Day. Truth be told, there are probably some people that can remember that speech word-for-word.

Ok, hands up if you know it off by heart?

"We will not go quietly into the night!" We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!" Even typing that is enough to give you goosebumps!

Well, the audience at the Woodstock Film Festival in Kingston, New York was treated to a very different type of speech after the actor was honoured with the accolade of Excellence In Acting.

After taking to the podium, Pullman decided to rock back-and-forth on the shaky structure. As you can imagine, the award fell to the floor before it broke into two pieces.

Ever the pro, Pullman managed to save face with a quick remark.

See, that's why he was elected to the US president.
