Uganda British Actor Daniel Kaluuya Wins Best Supporting Actor For ‘Judas’  In Golden Globe Awards

By Norman Isaac Mwambazi

 

The awards season in Hollywood kicked off last night with the Golden Globe awards ceremony that was attended only by a select few essential workers and presenters due to the COVD-19 pandemic restrictions.

British actor of Ugandan descent Daniel Kaluuya walked away, or rather sat away, because he attended the event virtually, with the Golden Globe for best supporting actor in a film for his magnetic portrayal of the late Black Panther leader Fred Hampton in ‘Judas’ and the ‘Black Messiah’.

Kaluuya beat a talented field that included 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).

The night was however hit by technical glitches, as Kaluuya initially lost sound for his acceptance speech, forcing in-studio presenter Laura Dern to apologize before audio was restored.

“You’re doing me dirty! Am I on?” joked best supporting actor Kaluuya, before paying tribute to late Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, whom he played in Judas and the Black Messiah.

“I hope generations after this can see how brilliantly he fought, how brilliantly he spoke, and how brilliantly he loved,” he said of Hampton.
