Oscar Winner Daniel Kaluuya: Is My Speech Going Viral?! | WATCH

*Come backstage with us at the Oscars and watch Daniel Kaluuya’s winning interview!

Is [my acceptance speech] going to go viral? It’s pretty obvious my parents had sex. My mom’s probably going to text me something — but here we are. [I haven’t gotten a chance to talk to her]. I’m going to wait for a bit…I think my mom is going to be very happy. She’s going to be cool. She’s got a sense of humor ‑‑ we give it to each other. So it’s cool! – Daniel Kaluuya

“There’s so much work to be done…it isn’t a single man’s job. I look at every single one of you, you got work to do,” explained the 32-year-old during his acceptance speech. “I’m going to get back to work, Tuesday morning, because tonight we’re enjoying ourselves! We got to celebrate life, we’re breathing, we’re walking. It’s incredible, it’s incredible – like my mum, my dad they had sex – it’s amazing! I’m here! I’m so happy to be alive!”
