His Royal Badness was decked in a shiny metallic getup accented with a diamond studded scepter/walking stick that he didn’t even use…because he is Prince. Watch below:

Prince presented the award to winners John Legend and Common for “Glory” from the film “Selma.”
“I want to thank God and the Hollywood Foreign Press,” Common began.
“I am the hopeful black woman who was denied the right to vote. I am the caring white supporter,” Common added. “I am the unarmed black kid, who maybe needed a hand, but instead of was given a bullet.
“Selma has awakened my humanity, he continued, thanking Ava DuVernay, Oprah and more.
“I’m so honored to be a part of this amazing film,” Legend said. “We’re so grateful to write this song.”
