The two-time BAFTA winner also made a joke about Viola Davis’ heist film Widows, praising the film for its female lead character.
She said: “It is important for female bank robbers to have role models too.”
Referring to Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali’s film Green Book, she warned winners to keep their speeches short.
Ms Lumley said: “They were just sublime in Green Book, undertaking a perilous journey around America’s deep south and hoping to get home in time for Christmas, which we should just about manage ourselves, as long as you keep your speeches short.
