The journalist replies after the viral clip seems to indicate that she mistook Daniel Kaluuya for Leslie Odom Jr.

Last night was a huge win for Daniel Kaluuya when he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Fred Hampton in “Judas and the Black Messiah.” After his great victory, he answered some questions from the press. However, there is a moment in the press room that has since gone viral.

While he was talking to a sales outlet, a journalist could be heard asking: “I was wondering what it means for you to be led by Regina. What does it mean for you at this time with the world in the state in which it is where it is located? ” With a confused look on his face, Daniel asked to hear the question again and the question was asked again, but Reginas [King] Name has been omitted.

Daniel Kaluuya answers a journalist who mistook him for Leslie Odom Jr. at the #Oscars and asked him: “How was it to be directed by Regina? [King]? “

Also nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category was Leslie Odom Jr., who starred in “One Night in Miami …” directed by Regina King. Hence, many people believed that the journalist might have mistaken Daniel for Leslie.

According to Vanity Fair, journalist Margaret Gardiner made it clear that she did not mistake Daniel for Leslie by saying, “Daniel Kaluuya, I did not mistake you for Leslie Odom Jnr. I’m sorry if it seemed that way. I wanted to ask about Regina King, who wasn’t nominated to direct One Night in Miami, and about your victory for Judas and the Black Messiah for the church at that time. “

She kept mentioning that there was a problem with the sound so she asked her question again, but dropped Regina’s name the second time she repeated her question and asked Daniel what his win meant to the community.

2. (Continued) #DanielKaluuya Since there was a solid problem, I dropped the part about Regina King and repeated my question. What does it mean for the community at this point in time? As I listed the audio I understand, but there was no confusion.
