If on March 4th Daniel Kaluuya wins the Oscars, he will definitely be in the league of Lupita Nyongo, Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt among others. Uganda will also have a chance to talk about this achievement.
However, we have to wait until then but what we can jubilate about for now is that Daniel Kaluuya, a British-born Ugandan actor has been nominated in the 90th annual Academy Awards or simply call them ‘The Oscars’
The Academy nominations that were announced at 4pm yesterday have Kaluuya’s Get Out with four nominations for Best Picture, Best Director and Original Screenplay for Jordan Peele and Best Actor nod for the Ugandan.
He faces stiff competition from Gary Oldman, Daniel Day-Lewis and Denzel Washington among others.
The Ugandan has been part of other movies like Kick- Ass 2, Johnny English Reborn where he starred alongside Rowan Atkinson (mostly known as Mr Bean), Sicario alongside Emily Blunt and recently, Marvel’s Black Panther which comes early next month.
