Daniel Kaluuya: ‘I’m trying to stay fearless, but it becomes harder when you’re more visible’

On the set of his new film Queen & Slim, the British actor Daniel Kaluuya realised something about himself. “It’s really difficult to play people that are content,” he explains. “If you look at Get Out, my character was riddled with trauma, guilt and borderline self-hate. In Queen & Slim, Slim is just, ‘I believe in God, I want a family, I don’t think I’m gonna change the world’. There’s less conflict. But, honestly, those people are so valuable.

Oscars 2021 winners, from Nomadland to Chloé Zhao and Daniel Kaluuya

This year's Oscars was a little bit different than usual. Play-off music didn't interrupt acceptance speeches, and the ceremony was more relaxed. But more importantly, the Academy Awards made history, with Chloé Zhao becoming the second ever woman to win best director and the first woman of color to nab that award. Minari's Youn Yuh-jung won best supporting actress, the first Korean acting win in the show's 93-year history. Perhaps surprisingly, Anthony Hopkins won best actor for The Father, beating the late Chadwick Boseman, who had been the favorite. On Monday, Hopkins spoke warmly of Boseman in a video posted to Instagram.

Did a Journalist Really Mistake Daniel Kaluuya for Leslie Odom Jr. at the Oscars?
