Sharon was making an appearance at the event following the tragic death of her young nephew, River, who passed away in August aged 11 months. 

The actresses’ nephew River died last month after being found in his crib with total organ failure. 

The star’s younger brother Patrick Stone and wife Tasha, who are River’s parents, made the tragic announcement earlier this week via CORE, the Center for Organ Recovery and Education.

‘He was our tiny jokester, our water baby, our little foodie,’ the family said in a statement to the organisation. ‘Now, River has also become a hero. In death, he made a far greater contribution to this world than most of us could ever hope to ourselves. 

‘And he proved that the shortest of lives can also be the most meaningful ones. As an organ donor, River saved three lives.’

The family said ‘there will never be a day, hour, a minute or even a second that we won’t miss our sweet baby.’

Sharon is mother to three sons – 21-year-old Roan, 16-year-old Laird and 15-year-old Quinn.

He continued: ‘She is a woman that Hitchcock would have loved. Her distinguishing qualities include an irresistible charm, a great human depth, the talent to play a whole range of roles and the ability to captivate an audience like no other. 

‘At a time when the film business was dominated by men, she stood her ground to fight against sexism and in doing so became a major role model for many women in the film business.’ 

Sharon looked over the moon as she accepted the award with a huge grin on her face.
