The mounting death toll in the Philippines weighed heavily on the minds of stars Idris Elba and George Clooney

, honoured at the Britannia Awards in Los Angeles.

Elba called on the "world community" to "pitch in" and "help as much as we can."

Clooney said he was following the news about Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the eastern seaboard of the Philippines Friday. As many as 10,000 people are believed dead in one Philippine city alone from one of the worst storms ever recorded.

The "Gravity" actor said he believes celebrities will rally in support of those affected by the "terrible disaster," as they did for earthquake-ravaged Haiti and New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
