Matthew McConaughey helped Dallas Buyers Club win big at the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards last night, January 18.

The star picked up the prize for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his role as AIDs patient Ron Woodroof in the biographical drama, and he told people to "just keep living" in his acceptance speech.

He said: "There’s a man I met 20 years ago. He escaped Russia.

"He was not even a carpenter, built a 17-foot boat and sailed across the Atlantic for decades he held the world record for smallest vessel single-man sailed across the Atlantic.

"He told me this, he said, ’A genius can be anybody he wants to, but a genius is always one person at a time.’

"So to that I say, that’s what we get to do, isn’t it?

"One man, one woman, one human. At a time.

"When we do it well. Just keep doing that. Just keep living."

Matthew’s co-star Jared Leto also picked up an award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role thanks to his performance in the movie.
