“I’d like to thank my mom. You gave me everything. You gave me your factory settings. So I could stand at my fullest height,” the actor said while accepting his award. Directed by Shaka King, the Warner Bros movie is inspired by true events in the late 1960s that were one of the most tumultuous and pivotal periods in American history.

This is the first Academy award for Kaluuya, who is best known for movies such as “Get Out”, “Black Panther” and “Queen & Slim”.

Hampton was 21 when he was assassinated during a coordinated raid by a tactical unit with orders from the FBI and the Chicago Police Department.
