Tatum was up against Chris Pratt for Guardians of the Galaxy, Rose Byrne for Neighbors, Chris Rock for Top Five, and Kevin Hart for The Wedding Ringer.
Tatum kept his speech short and sweet. Like, reallllly short and sweet. He said of his role in the movie, "It's unfair for me to get an award for just getting to hang out with my buddy Jonah [Hill]." And finished simply, "Appreciate y'all."
