Daniel Kaluuya told the "Graham Norton Show" he wasn't invited to the "Get Out" world premiere.
Kaluuya said he was shooting "Black Panther" at the time and cleared his schedule to attend.
But no one invited him, so he stayed in bed while the premiere happened at Sundance Film Festival.
Daniel Kaluuya said he wasn't invited to the world premiere of "Get Out" at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival despite being the movie's lead actor.
Kaluuya appeared on the Graham Norton Show to promote his new movie "Judas and the Black Messiah," which also stars fellow "Get Out" alum Lakeith Stanfield. At the time of the "Get Out" premiere, Kaluuya was shooting "Black Panther," and the actor ensured his schedule didn't intefere with his potential attendance of the premiere. However, that never came to fruition.
Kaluuya told Norton: "They didn't invite me. On the Sundance world premiere, I was in Atlanta because I was shooting '[Black] Panther.' I was chilling, I cleared my schedule. I was like, 'I really wanna do it.' And then I just didn't get the invite, man. I wasn't invited. So I was just in my bed - someone texted me, 'it's done really well,' and I'm like, 'alright, that's cool.'"
Kaluuya added: "That's the industry, Graham."
Kaluuya said that he has never brought it up since the snub because he didn't want to "ask questions," adding that he didn't "want to be in a place where you don't feel wanted." Norton suggested that "somebody f---ed up."
While Kaluuya didn't attend the premiere, there appears to be no bad blood between him and "Get Out" writer and director Jordan Peele as he is starring in Peele's next movie alongisde Keke Palmer.
Kaluuya and Peele were snapped at many other premieres and red carpet events together throughout the release and awards season of "Get Out," including the Academy Awards - where Peele won best original screenplay for the movie.
Kaluuya was nominated for best actor, too, and the role proved to be a breakout one for the actor alongside the mammoth hit that was "Black Panther." Kaluuya has gone on to star in acclaimed projects such as Steve McQueen's "Widows," "Queen & Slim," and his new movie "Judas and the Black Messiah."
The film follows Kaluuya as the chairman of the Black Panther party, Fred Hampton, in the 1960s and the betrayal of Hampton by FBI informant William O'Neal (Stanfield).
The movie, produced by "Black Panther" director Ryan Coogler, is a late-breaker into awards season and is generating increasing buzz, most of which for Kaluuya's fierce performance.
