During an appearance on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show, Washington gave his acceptance speech. "I heard about this," Washington said around the 3:39 mark in the video up top. Fallon then questioned where, exactly, the Mo' Better Blues tribute appeared on Drake's body. "Now you got me wondering now," Washington said. "Where is that?"
Washington also discussed his new film Roman J. Israel, Esq. and joined fellow Tonight Show guest Steph Curry for a shootout contest:
Roman J. Israel, Esq. stars Washington as a defense attorney whose dedication to activism is tested when he joins a firm headed by lawyer George Pierce, played by Colin Farrell. The Dan Gilroy-directed drama is in theaters now.
Around this time last year, Washington was casually dropping some much-needed perspective on the very real dangers of actual fake news. "What is the long-term effect of too much information?" Washington asked a reporter during a Fences red carpet event. "One of the effects is the need to be first, not even to be true anymore." Prescient as fuck.
