Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya was the winner of the prize this year – the only Bafta to be voted for by the public – and he looked genuinely surprised.

“My mum is the reason why I started, the reason why I’m here and the reason why I keep going,” he said as he accepted the award.

He went blank at one point during his speech, but speaking backstage also remembered to thank Top Boy’s Ashley Walters.

“I want to say to Ashley thanks for leading and inspiring me, he has made it all possible,” he said.

Kaluuya was inspired by seeing Walters on screen as he had come from a similar background.

He also said “levels” about 20 times during his speech, giving the Baftas a much-needed dose of London slang.

Who is Daniel Kaluuya?

Daniel Kaluuya is an English  actor, comedian and writer of Ugandan origin. He was born in 1989 in London, England to Ugandan immigrant parents.

At 27, Kaluuya has a somewhat familiar face. You may recognize him from the British Twilight Zone-like anthology series Black Mirror, or as Posh Kenneth in the British teen comedy-drama Skins or maybe you recognize him from “Too Many Weave,” his viral parody of the grime collective Boy Better Know’s “Too Many Man”.  Perhaps you’ve seen him flex an American accent as Emily Blunt’s FBI sidekick in the Mexican drug cartel blockbuster Sicario.
