African American Film Critics Association Awards: Daniel Kaluuya Shines

Last night, Judas and the Black Messiah took top honours from the African American Film Critics Association, the world’s largest group of Black film critics.

Per THR, the film was named best picture, with star Daniel Kaluuya winning best supporting actor for his portrayal of Black Panther Party deputy chairman Fred Hampton, and Dominique Fishback named best supporting actress for her role as Deborah Johnson, Hampton’s fiancee and mother of his child. Helmer Shaka King also won breakout director.

“Serving alongside an all-Black producing team, Judas and the Black Messiah director Shaka King created a project that permanently enshrines pivotal Black Panther leader Fred Hampton as an American hero. Released against the backdrop of the present-day Black Lives Matter movement, the film’s message of commitment and sacrifice to social justice is empowering,” AAFCA president and co-founder Gil Robertson said in a statement. “Daniel Kaluuya as Hampton is literally on fire and is supported well by Dominique Fishback who increasingly has become an actress to watch. Our members are thrilled to award the film with our highest honor.”
