Duncan Jones Accepts David Bowie Album Award | Brits 2017

Duncan Jones Accepting David Bowie's Brit Award: "This Is For All the Kooks"

The late, great David Bowie scooped up not one, but two, Brit Awards on Wednesday night for British album of the year and British male solo artist. There to accept his album of the year win for Blackstar was the singer-songwriter's son Duncan Jones, who last year tweeted out his praise for Lorde's moving tribute. Duncan made an emotional speech, noting "I lost my dad last year, but I also became a dad." In response to own his question, "What would I want my son to know about his granddad?" he answered "He's always been there supporting people who think they're a little bit weird or strange or a little bit different," and dedicated the award fittingly to "all the kooks and all the people who make the kooks."

Michael C. Hall, who recently played the lead in David Bowie's musical, Lazarus, accepted his British male solo artist win, adding: "If David Bowie could be here tonight, he probably wouldn't be here tonight."
