“A drink is in order. We are going to party. We are going to turn up,” said Jimmy Napes on how the songwriting duo plans to celebrate their win.

Sam Smith added: “I am gonna destroy some burgers and chocolate cake in a second. And beer.”

When asked if he would be reaching out to Ian McKellen, whom Sam Smith mentioned in his Oscars speech, the singer said: “I don’t know him. I would love you have his number. I really like Gandalf.” He continued: “I wanted to take this opportunity to show how much I care about my community. I just wanted to make it clear how much I truly care about the LGBT community.”

Smith concluded: “We are completely overwhelmed. We really can’t speak. I am a little bit drunk as well.”
