Sadly, you won’t see Idris Elba’s handsome face at the Golden Globes this year.

Elba, who’s nominated for two Golden Globes — one for Best Actor in a TV movie or limited series for his role in Luther, and one for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for Beasts of No Nation — pulled his back and will be missing the night’s festivities, ET has learned.

He is, however, expected to attend the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Jan. 30.
