Idris Elba on diversity – and on being part of Oscar win
Idris Elba was at his first Oscars ceremony, and told the BBC’s Colin Paterson why he thought Everything Everywhere All at Once’s success was so crucial.
Speaking on the Vanity Fair red carpet, the actor said: “It’s so important, the diversity of it.
“The film is about exploration of ideas. We can tell stories of torment and conflict, but that story’s about the celebration of imagination.”
Elba also voiced the Fox, for The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, which won best animated short.
“I feel very proud to be part of it,” he said, adding: “Its narrative really touched our world [during the Covid pandemic]. It’s about kindness and human beings.”
