Cuba Gooding Jr stole the show at BAFTA Awards last night in London.

The actor hopes his show shone a light on what happened to OJ Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman.

Cuba Gooding Jr said he could “kiss every person in this room” after The People V OJ Simpson: American Crime Story won a Bafta TV Award.

The drama about the trial and acquittal of the former American football star for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman won the international prize at the Bafta TV Awards.

He added: “What happened to those two people was a tragedy and I hope we shined a little light on that.”

The trophy was collected by Cuba, who played the disgraced athlete.

 

He said: “I’m a boy from the hood who flew over to London and now I’m on the stage accepting gold. I want to literally kiss every person in this room.”
