Close published an image of herself sitting with Kaluuya, Darrell Britt-Gibson and her film writer BFF Chris Terrio, noting they “had the MOST FUN” at their table.
“I knew that Lil Rel was going to quiz me about Da Butt and all three guys helped me run through what I was to say,” she captioned the image. “Darrell firmly insisted that I point out the Backyard Band, on top of E.U., Suga Bear and the entire DMV. I had actually googled ‘Da Butt’ and viewed Spike’s video so when Lil Rel asked if I might do the dance…you can really see me consider the video. That part was totally spontaneous. Daniel, Darrell and Chris egged me on!!! It was ALL their fault.”
She then praised Kaluuya on winning Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his efficiency in Judas and the Black Messiah. “You are completely brilliant,” Close composed. “I now consider both Daniel and Darrell to be friends-for-life!”
