Daniel Kaluuya just won Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his role as Black revolutionary Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah.
Presented by Laura Dern, Kaluuya’s audio wasn’t coming through although we could see him in his sharp purple blazer.
Kaluuya was finally able to get through. He was repeatedly saying jokingly, “You did me dirty! You done me dirty!”
When reflecting on the making of the film, Kaluuya quoted the late great Nipsey Hussle. He said, “Like the great Nipsey Hussle says, ‘We’re here to give til we’re empty.’ And.. I gave everything.”
He was up against Sacha Baron Cohen The Trial of the Chicago 7, Jared Leto The Little Things, Bill Murray On the Rocks, and Leslie Odom, Jr. One Night in Miami
