Ford accepted his award to a standing ovation from the room after a video compilation featuring some of his biggest film successes played.

"First of all, I'm really happy to be here tonight to see what our business is turning into, and all of the talented people who are getting opportunities that probably wouldn't have existed in the early part of my career," said the Indiana Jones legend.

Ford also took time to express gratitude for his partner. "I want to thank my lovely wife, Calista Flockhart, who supports me when I need a lot of support," he said. "And I need a lot of support."

Both Ford and Flockhart appeared to tear up during the reference to their marriage.

"It’s an emotional thing," the actress said on Live Wednesday, addressing the touching moment. "You know, his body of work is so incredible and it’s so well-deserved. So yeah, I feel very proud of him and happy for him."

Asked what her favorite movie of her husband's is, Flockhart said 1986's Mosquito Coast, but gave some love to Working Girl (1988) as well.

"I love Working Girl because he’s very funny, and Harrison is very funny. He’s surprisingly funny," the actress told Ripa and husband Mark Consuelos.

"I watch it with her and she loves it so that makes me love it," Consuelos, 52, said of his wife.

Flockhart walked the Feud: Capote vs. The Swans red carpet solo on Tuesday night, but she told PEOPLE during the event that her husband supports her in "so many ways."

"He supports me a lot. It’s a mutual thing," she added.
