Among the nominees for this year’s Oscars include Daniel Kaluuya for Best Actor for his role in Jordan Peele’s Get Out, which also earned a nomination for Best Picture. Kaluuya will go head-to-head with two time Academy-Award winner Denzel Washington for his portrayal in Roman J. Israel.

After Peele learned his 28-year-old leading man for earned a nomination he called him to congratulate, but failed desperately at hiding the tears of joy he experienced.
