Considering they were on the same weekend as the BAFTAs, the Directors Guild of America awards didn't get quite the same coverage.

However, one thing that is going viral is Judd Apatow's monologue at the awards, which he used to mercilessly roast Tom Cruise.

The 'Anchorman' and 'Superbad' director made Cruise the butt of his jokes during his speech, poking fun at his height, his devotion to Scientology and his insistence on performing his own stunts.

Speaking about 'Top Gun: Maverick', Apatow said: "The special effects in ‘Maverick’ were so top notch, I couldn’t even see the stack of phone books Tom Cruise sat on to reach the flight controls."

He added: "Remember when Tom Cruise jumped up and down on the [Oprah show] couch and we all thought, ‘What a lunatic!' And now he rides a motorcycle off a cliff and BASE jumps and we’re all like, ‘Tom’s fine!'

"Tom is not fine. Someone needs to explain to him something called CGI. You’re 60. Calm down. But every time he does one of these new stunts, it does feel like an ad for Scientology. I mean, is that in Dianetics? Because there’s nothing about jumping off a cliff in the Torah."

He went on to reference the rumour that Cruise does not see his daughter with Katie Holmes, Suri, anymore, while also slamming his attitude toward medication for mental health issues; he famously condemned Brook Shields for taking antidepressants in the early 2000s.

"The only thing he seems to be afraid of is co-parenting and antidepressants,” Apatow said. "I doubled my Prozac today just for this. I doubled it! Do you think if Tom Cruise took antidepressants, he’d be like, ‘I’m not jumping out of a fucking cliff. I’m rich!'"

Variety noted that 'Top Gun: Maverick' director Joseph Kosinski did not look amused by Apatow's jokes.

Cruise has not publicly responded to Apatow, but it's safe to say that he won't be appearing in any of his films anytime soon.
