People loved Daniel Kaluuya’s mum’s reaction to his Oscars ‘sex’ speech – 9 favourite responses
It was an Oscars ceremony like no other for reasons we don’t need to go into here.
And the most memorable moment was surely Daniel Kaluuya’s mum totally stealing the show with her reaction to her Oscar-winning son’s acceptance speech.
The British star won best supporting actor for his role as Black Panther Party chairman Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah.
And his winning speech surprised everyone – especially his mum – when he said this.

And the reaction of his mum and sister – watching from the BFI on London’s South Bank – went wildly viral because it was just fabulous.

I feel like Daniel Kaluuya did this is for all the kids whose Mom publicly embarrassed them at some point. That said, based on Moms reaction .. Daniel might wanna go pick a switch before he comes back to the table 😂

Daniel Kaluuya just inspired the hell out of me. What an actor. What a man. And yes, his parents had sex.

And here’s what the (Oscar winning) actor said later.
Daniel Kaluuya: "I haven’t talked to my mom yet. I’m gonna avoid my phone for a bit. But she’ll be cool. She has a sense of humor."
