Lakeith Stanfield's 'Sorry to Bother You' Wins at Spirit Awards 2019!

Boots Riley accepts the award for Best First Feature at the 2019 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday afternoon (February 23) in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 47-year-old filmmaker was joined on stage by cast members Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Armie Hammer, Steven Yeun, and more.

“There are real movements happening out there on the streets, direct action, where people are trying to change the way the world is and, rightly so, film is responding,” Boots said in his acceptance speech.

“This is a film that takes place in an office place and it’s the first one that I know that has class struggle in it even though class struggle is happening every day when you’re on your jobs and you’re seeing that happen. For some reason, we thought we had to edit that out of our stories,” he added.

“AYE. Our film @sorry2botheryou just won best first feature at @filmindependent awards & then @lakeithstanfield3 & I took this picture on the way to the porta potty,” Tessa captioned a pic on Instagram.

FYI: Lakeith is wearing Karen Walker Eyewear sunglasses. Armie is wering an Etro suit. Steven is wearing an Acne Studios jacket, trousers, and shirt. Tessa is wearing a Vaquera gown. Boots is wearing a Sebastian Cruz Couture suit.
