And the Oscar goes to… Judas and the Black Messiah

Apr 26 2021
In February this year, while we were in lockdown, I watched an exclusive preview screening of Warner Bros’ latest movie Judas and the Black Messiah and attended a special talents’ gathering online to discuss this production. I immediately knew that I was watching a movie that would make an impact on film history. Judas and the Black Messiah is an insightful film that feels relevant with what is happening in today’s history. 
Before the Oscars, it had already received a number of awards this season, including best supporting actor trophies at the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Critics’ Choice Awards and British Academy Film Awards for star Daniel Kaluuya. Last night, he also won the Oscar for best supporting actor. In addition to that, the Oscar for Best Original Song went to H.E.R. for the song Fight for You, which was featured in Judas and the Black Messiah.
