Tom was honored for his services to the film industry and received a standing ovation at the ceremony.
Kaitlyn stars in the Netflix miniseries Unbelievable, which dramatises the 2011 – 2020 serial rapes that took place in Washington and Colorado.
The actress plays Marie Adler, a teenager who was charged with lying about having been raped while Toni Colette and Merritt Wever play two detectives trying to discover the truth.
Kaitlyn met with the real-life Marie who was pleased with how she was portrayed on the show and found ‘a lot of closure’ from watching it.
The star admitted the role was one of the hardest things she has ever had to do and she often cried on set due to the nature of the storyline.
She said: ‘I wanted to give it everything that I had. I had to forget about my feelings; the story seemed so much bigger than me.
‘I’d keep myself in check by reminding myself that the headache I had from crying all day [during filming] was nothing in comparison to what she had gone through , so I could deal with this for the three or four months we were shooting. ‘

Kaitlyn, who received a Golden Globe nomination for her role in Unbelievable, also spoke about her mother Kathy’s stage 4 breast cancer diagnosis.
The actress said she often had to suppress her true emotions after her mother was first diagnosed as she felt a responsibility not to get upset in front of her sister, who was only six years old at the time.
However, Katilyn added that the ordeal has also helped her with her acting as well as given her perspective on ‘what matters’.
The Justified star’s most recent film role was in Booksmart, the directorial debut of actress Olivia Wilde.
Kaitlyn told the publication how she is selective about the roles she chooses and found her part in the film fulfilling and doesn’t think she can ‘go backwards’ now.
