Jordan Peele's horror film "Get Out" has won the Academy Award for best original screenplay, making Peele the first African-American to win the award. At the process of writing the movie, Peele revealed that he almost stopped working on "Get Out" almost 20 times thinking that it was an impossible film to write and that he also wouldn't have gotten it made even if he had finished it. "I thought it wasn't going to work", Peele said during his speech. "Like, I know that I can get it made, so let's move forward with that goal in mind, instead of it being this ongoing project that who knows if anyone will ever see it". Horror movies are seldom critical darlings, but Get Out-about a black man who goes home to meet his white girlfriend's family-is the rare exception, hanging out at 99 percent on Rotten Tomatoes since its release last February. And hopefully those same people are ready for Key and Peele's Gremlins 3.
Jordan Peele hopes his Oscar win for Best Original Screenplay on Sunday night (04Mar18) inspires young people from all backgrounds to pursue their dreams. The film also received Oscar nominations for best picture, best director for Peele, and best actor for Kaluuya.
He also thanked the film's team, his wife, mother and "to everybody who went and saw this movie".
"If I fall over, pick me up, because I've got some things to say", McDormand, who won a best actress Oscar for Fargo in 1997, said. Even Peele's comedic partner-in-crime was overjoyed to see his partner win.
