Prior to popping the question to his baby’s mama on Monday night, Kanye West flew from San Francisco to Los Angeles to honor 12 Years A Slave director, Steve McQueen. The rapper was a surprise guest at the Hollywood Film Awards, where he presented McQueen with the Breakout Director Award.
“I’ve always admired Steve’s work,” West said. “One of the things I loved was just the way he held the shots. I thought that was extremely modern and felt so much more like real life.” West called McQueen’s slavery film “extremely moving,” before noting that he was headed back to San Francisco.
Once back in San Francisco, just in case you’ve been hiding under a rock all morning, Kanye proposed to Kim Kardashian with a ginormous 15-carat diamond ring.
