Daniel Kaluuya at the Oscars

Best Actor nominee Daniel Kaluuya has earned widespread praise for his perfect comeback to a red carpet interviewer.


Black Panther star Kaluuya was nominated for an Oscar for his leading role in Get Out – Jordan Peele’s groundbreaking horror movie which undermines classic movie tropes and explores race relations in America.

But on the red carpet at the Academy Awards, a Sky journalist told the actor that Get Out “ticks a lot of boxes, in some ways”.

“We’re not boxes, though,” Kaluuya responded.

“Articulating the black experience isn’t a box. We’re articulating our truth. We’re human beings.”


The question left a lot of people with their jaws hanging open – but Kaluuya’s answer was spot on.
