Ugandan film star Kaluuya Nominated for Oscar Awards.

 Daniel Kaluuya, a British actor of Ugandan origin, has been nominated for an Oscar for his role in the hit horror film Get Out.

The young Londoner faces strong competition in the Actor in a Leading Role category from established Hollywood stars, including Denzel Washington and Daniel Day-Lewis.

According to the UK newspaper, Kaluuya, 28, has already received a Bafta nomination and a Golden Globe nomination for his breakthrough role in the horror film, a dark satire on race relations in the United States.

He becomes the first Ugandan to get nominated for an Oscar.

“I feel what the film’s done is articulate an experience. It’s a touchstone where people can go, ‘Yeah, this,’ and feel like they aren’t crazy,” says Kaluuya.

“But I can’t say it’s changed the political landscape,” he said in an interview with Dujour publication.

Kaluuya has always been interested in uncovering the truth. He wrote his first play at nine. His big breakthrough was joining gritty British teen drama Skins as a staff writer at 18, drawing on his own experience growing up in London, Dojour writes.

He has previously appeared in the sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror and Channel 4’s Skins, but Get Out is his first leading role in a major feature film.
