"To all the people who lived through the AIDS crisis and lost the ones you loved," Ruffalo tweeted. "This award is yours. @SAGawards You are heroes."

The actor didn't forget about his fans, adding: "Last but not least. Thanks to all you folks who have supported the movie and me all these years. Good night. Again."
