Daniel Kaluuya took home the 2021 Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Judas and the Black Messiah.
During his acceptance speech, he gave a sweet shout-out to his mom saying, “I’d like to thank my mom. Thank you so much for pouring into me. You gave me everything, you gave me your factory settings so I could stand at my fullest height.”
In his excitement he exclaimed, “We gotta celebrate, we gotta celebrate life. We’re breathing, we’re walking. It’s incredible. Like, my mom, my dad, they had sex — it’s amazing! I’m here. I’m so happy to be alive and I’m gonna celebrate that tonight.”
Well, his mother and sister were watching from the U.K. with cameras on them and they caught her reaction. His mom mouths “what is he talking about?” as his sister looked hilariously embarrassed.
Backstage, he admitted that he doesn’t “think my mom’s gonna be very happy,” explaining that, “It just came out of my mouth. My mom’s probably gonna text me some stuff, but well, here we are, you know. I really shouldn’t have said that.”
He added that he’s “gonna avoid my phone for a bit.”
