Oscar winner thanks parents for having sex in all-time speech

The Oscars are done and dusted for another year, which was once again full of frocks, red carpets and acceptance speeches.

And, there’s no doubt the best speech of the event went to British actor Daniel Kaluuya, who won Best Supporting Actor for his role as Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah.

The speech started off as most acceptance speeches do, with Kaluuya thanking the cast of the film, the crew and Fred Hampton’s family for allowing him to play the role.

He also thanked his mother for her dedication.

Things started to get weird when he told the audience of his plans to celebrate the Oscar win.

“We have to celebrate life, we’re breathing and working. It’s incredible. My mum and dad, they had sex, it’s amazing,” he said.

“I’m here, do you know what I mean. I’m going to celebrate life and I appreciate everyone in the room and peace, love and onwards.”


There was no one more confused by the comments than Kaluuya’s mother, who was in attendance at the ceremony.

A perfectly timed piece of camera work panned to her moments after the sex comments, as she clearly mouthed “What is he talking about?”

However, that wasn’t the only hilarious Oscars highlight, with Glenn Close – one of Hollywood’s most respected actresses – danced along to the Experience Unlimited hit “Da Butt” when it was played to the audience by the show’s DJ, Questlove.
