"Hey... you did me dirty! You're doing me dirty! You're doing me dirty! You're doing me dirty!" he joked, after his sound was muted.
"Am I on? Is this on? Is this on? Alright, cool, can you hear me now? Alright, cool, we got this. We're cool."

"I used to listen to a song before every speech, so I'd like to thank C Biz for making "The Game's Mine".
The star also thanked Judas and the Black Messiah's "incredible cast" and crew, saying: "It takes a village to raise a film."
"This took it out of me," Kaluuya added. "I gave everything. Like the great Nipsey Hussle says, 'We're here to give 'til we're empty'.
Kaluuya said playing Hampton "taught me about myself, and made me grow as a man, and I appreciate it with all my heart... there's a lot of information about how he died, but I hope you people out there will grow and learn about how incredibly he lived".
"Thank you so much for this honour."
He then raised a glass of champagne to his fellow nominees, saying: "I appreciate you guys... I can't believe I'm on a Zoom with Bill Murray, man, that's mad." at the end of his speech.
