He aims, he shoots, he scores … a Critics’ Choice Award for his role as DCI John Luther.
Okay, let’s backtrack: Idris Elba of course doesn’t go into roles or act for the accolades, but hey, he’s not going to say no when being awarded for his work.
Elba won the Critics’ Choice award for Best Actor in a TV Movie or Limited Series for BBC America’s Luther at last night’s (January 17) ceremony.
Unfortunately Elba wasn’t able to attend the event to accept the award because he’s reportedly due to address Parliament today (January 18) in regards to diversity in British television.
Today’s event at Westminster has been organized by Channel 4 and will include over 100 MPs.
We can’t imagine this is the case, but if for some reason you’re not caught up with the fourth season of Luther, here’s a peek at the trailer (it’s a nail-biter):
Other Critics’ Choice Award winners include a Best Actor win for Leonardo DiCaprio for his role in The Revenant and Brie Larson for Best Actress based on her performance in the film The Room.
Comedic actor Aziz Ansari‘s Netflix original Master of None took home the win for Best Comedy and actress and comedian Amy Schumer was recognized for her work on Inside Amy Schumer and Trainwreck with the MVP award.
And since Elba wasn’t able to give a speech, we’ll instead share the cutest speech given by The Room‘s Jacob Tremblay for Best Young Actor:
Congrats to Idris Elba on his win!Read More
