Kaluuya’s explosive success surprises no one who’s had their eyes open. His unblinking horror from 2017’s “Get Out” ensured this British-Ugandan thesp would have a role in Hollywood going forward, and the past year has proved it. Having earned a Golden Globe for “Judas and the Black Messiah” early in 2021, he went on to become the first British actor of African heritage to win the Oscar for the same role. In September 2021, he was up for a guest comedy Emmy for hosting “Saturday Night Live,” which made him eligible to potentially become the first male actor to win an Emmy and Oscar in the same year. Currently, he’s back shooting features “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” and “The Upper World,” and recently wrapped “Nope,” the next film from “Get Out” director Jordan Peele.
