  • Abraham Attah, the Ghana-born 15-year-old actor who broke out last year in Beasts of No Nation, was one classy dude this past weekend as he accepted the Best Male Lead award at Saturday’s Independent Spirit Awards and presented at Sunday’s Oscars.

    Abraham Attah plays a young warrior in the film, which is his first role ever, but he sure cleans up nice and speaks eloquently.

    At the Independent Spirit Awards, Abraham Attah wore a blue tux with a blue and white bowtie. He complemented the look with an amazing pair of blue suede shoes.

    Earlier in the show, he was pulled on stage by co-star Idris Elba, who was accepting the award for Best Supporting Male.

    Elba said, “I couldn’t have done it without you.”

    Abraham Attah was very gracious in thanking the people he worked with when it was his turn for the spotlight.

    He said, “Thank you to the film independents for this award. First of all I wanted to say thank you to Ted and everyone that worked on the movie.”

    At Sunday’s Oscar ceremony, Abraham Attah, after receiving a boost from Chris Rock, said, “The nominees this year show that when it comes to making an impact on the big screen, size really doesn’t matter.”
