The performer, who won Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture, started off his speech with some rocky audio and almost was cut away from. 

After the technical issues were resolved, Kaluuya shouted out his cast and crew for their help, including the "Cleveland crew." 

"It takes a village to raise a film, so I'd like to thank our leader, our General, Shaka King for your vision, for your collaboration," Kaluuya said.

"All the crew, all the cast- the cast are my comrades, all my crew in Cleveland, we did this together." 

The movie was filmed in Cleveland and around Northeast Ohio in 2019 and was adapted from a screenplay written by King and Will Berson and based on the story of the betrayal of Chicago Black Panther Fred Hampton in the late 1960s.
