The network’s US correspondent was standing in the media pit when he spotted the nominated 32-year-old actor making his way down the red carpet.
With COVID restrictions making it almost impossible for the media to get close to the stars, David began screaming out to Daniel from several metres away.

‘Hey, Daniel! Daniel, Australia mate! Daniel! Can we have a quick chat, mate? How you going?’ he began to yell, while frantically waving an arm in the air.
A seemingly unimpressed Daniel cautiously made his way over to David, leaving Sunrise anchors Natalie Barr and Matt Doran stunned.
But after getting side-tracked on the red carpet, the British actor hesitated, prompting Matt, 37, to urge David to ‘play the Australian card’ again.

‘Dan! Dan… You are live on air in Australia at the moment,’ David continued as Daniel stepped up to the microphone that had been set up on the red carpet.
The Black Panther star then began to relax and jokingly responded: ‘Ooh, live! I can say what I want.’
Daniel told David that this year’s red carpet was ‘so much more chilled and so much more relaxed’.

‘So I really stood out when I started yelling at you?’ asked David, prompting Daniel to respond, ‘Yeah, I was like, “Who’s this guy?”‘
Daniel later won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Judas and the Black Messiah.
Talking to David ahead of the awards ceremony, he said he was feeling ‘blessed’ and ‘grateful’ to have been nominated for the coveted award.
