Like most of us over the last 12 months, Judas and the Black Messiah's Daniel Kaluuya succumbed to a common problem of Zoom calling at yesterday's (February 28) Golden Globe Awards.
Accepting the Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
gong for his performance as Black Panther Party chairman Fred Hampton, Kaluuya's connection failed as the audio didn't broadcast for a little while.
Laura Dern, who was presenting the award, apologised for the technical issues, before Kaluuya jumped back on screen with the matter resolved.
"Hey... you did me dirty! You're doing me dirty! You're doing me dirty! You're doing me dirty!" he joked, pointing at the camera as the sound came back.
"Am I on? Is this on? Is this on? Alright, cool, can you hear me now? Alright, cool, we got this. We're cool."
Kaluuya then thanked the HFPA and gave a thumbs-up to many of his family members for their continued support, while also highlighting the work done by Judas and the Black Messiah's "incredible cast" and crew, saying: "It takes a village to raise a film."
"This took it out of me," Kaluuya added. "I gave everything. Like the great Nipsey Hussle says, 'We're here to give 'til we're empty'."
Kaluuya said playing Hampton "taught me about myself, and made me grow as a man, and I appreciate it with all my heart... there's a lot of information about how he died, but I hope you people out there will grow and learn about how incredibly he lived.
"Thank you so much for this honour."
He also raised a glass to his fellow nominees at the end of the speech, saying: "I appreciate you guys... I can't believe I'm on a Zoom with Bill Murray, man, that's mad."
Upon premiering at last month's Sundance Film Festival, Judas and the Black Messiah received rave reviews from critics, with particular praise for Kaluuya and LaKeith Stanfield's performances.
