The Get Out cast member, who received the EE Rising Star trophy, an award which is voted for by the public, shared a secret with viewers at home.
In his speech, he revealed that winners have a “countdown” for their speeches to ensure they don’t run overtime.
The actor said he “wasn’t supposed to say that” during his witty acceptance speech, which had audience members howling with laughter.
He said: “There’s a countdown. I wasn’t supposed to say that but I’ve said that now. We break all the rules. No – levels.”
The 28-year-old collected his award from Hollywood actresses Margot Robbie and Octavia Spencer.
Daniel beat Florence Pugh, Josh O’Connor, Tessa Thompson and Timothee Chalamet to the gong.
The Black Panther star dedicated his award to his mother and thanked his friends, family and collaborators.
