The 2021 Oscar Academy Awards ceremonies were different: delayed for two months, limited attendance, no after-parties, no usual red-carpets dramas. However, two awards made history: Daniel Kaluuya as supporting actor in a critical movie about the Civil Rights struggles by Blacks in America and Chloé Zhao as Best Director, becoming the first woman of color, ever,  to win the title.  

This year, the Oscar Academy Awards ceremony was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and split between  two areas, for in person attendance:   Dolby Theater in Hollywood and Union Station in Los Angeles. 

Judas and the Black Messiah: Black Civil Rights,  Fight For Social Justice, and Betrayal

Daniel Kaluuya won the Best Supporting Actor award  in  “Judas and the Black Messiah.”  In this 2021 American biographical drama, he portrayed Fred Hampton, a young and dynamic Black Panther leader in the events held the late 1960s Civili Rights movement. The movie focuses on the betrayal and assassination of Fred Hampton, then the  chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party in  Chicago, at the hands of William O'Neal, played by Lakeith Stanfield, who had been forced to become an FBI informant, instead of being put into prison for decades, for attempting to hijack a car,  posing as a federal officer. 

Daniel Kaluuya was born in London, the son of Ugandan immigrants.  He became famous with  his portrayal of Chris in the movie 2017 Get Out (see AfroAmerica Network: Get Out Wins the Rotten Tomatoes' Best Movie of 2017).
