Six Time Oscar Nominee
The nominations include: Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Daniel Kaluuya), Best Supporting Actor (LaKeith Stanfield), Best Original Screenplay, and Best Cinematography.
Daniel Kaluuya on the Impact of the Film
In an interview with Celebrity Page TV correspondent Rachel Smith, Kaluuya discussed the importance in recognition the film is getting.
"It's amazing to kind of, like, to know that because of this recognition more people are going to take in Chairman Fred Hampton's words and his messages. So, for that, it's incredible."
Kaluuya plays Illinois Black Panther leader Chairman Fred Hampton, a revolutionary activist who fought towards equality for all.
Stanfield on Holding Himself Back
In a sit down with Celebrity Page TV, fellow Oscar nominee LaKeith Stanfield discussed the challenges of playing FBI informant Bill O'Neal, a traitor of the Black Panthers and assassin of Hampton.
"It was a little bit of a challenge the whole way through. Actually, a lot of the challenge, the hardest part was getting out of my own way, getting rid of my own judgements I had."
"Yeah, good to see him again, good to see him around. Yeah, there's a lot of people in there who I had crossed paths with who I really appreciate and am inspired by."
