David Oyelowo is a frontrunner for the Best Actor Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards, and the nominations haven’t even been announced yet.
As a producer on Selma, Brad Pitt took to the stage at the Palm Springs International Film Festival to present Oyelowo with the Breakthrough Performance Award. Before the man of the hour came out, though, he had to help the audience pronounce his name: first by having them repeat it, then with a song.
Once again, everyone, it’s Oyelowo. Oh-YEL-oh-wo.
