Jordan Peele makes history with 'Get Out' win

Why We Need More Filmmakers Who Aren’t Cisgender White Men

Of course, Peele's win was also notable for another reason: he's the first black writer to win Best Original Screenplay. "I stopped writing this movie 20 times because I one would ever make this movie".

Accepting the award, the filmmaker said: "This means so much to me". It's very special and I think it goes for all areas of inclusion.

Celebrities offered praise for the win on Twitter.

He made "Get Out" on a tight 23-day shooting schedule and for $4.5 million, and he recognized many people who helped him along the way.

Now he can take the Oscar to meet the rest of his growing awards collection, including the Directors Guild, Writers Guild, Critics Choice, and three BAFTA Awards he collected for Get Out over the past two months.

Ivory acknowledged his late colleagues in his acceptance speech.

However, in the alternate ending - which was included on the DVD release of Peele's masterpiece - it's not his pal Rod who turns up in the police vehicle: instead, it's two white policemen.

Did Taraji P. Henson drag Ryan Seacrest on the Oscars red carpet?
He has strongly denied the allegations, writing in a February 5 essay for The Hollywood Reporter that the accusations were false. Time's Up pins and talk about the #MeToo movement were tamer on the red carpet than at the Golden Globes in January.

Jordan Peele won Best Original Screenplay for his work on the 2017 racial satirical thriller "Get Out". It was a big win for Peele, a big win for horror cinema, and a big win for diversity in screenwriting, and Peele is still celebrating. But with the songwriting team's Oscar win for best song for "Remember Me" from the animated film "Coco", Lopez became the first person to earn the EGOT twice. You might recall Williams posting a photo on Instagram last spring saying she "fell in love" with Fairhope while filming the movie.

Kind of makes you wanna tell your best friend you're proud of them, doesn't it? Get Out isn't just his first movie as a filmmaker, but a rare genre movie that actually managed to get some very serious love from the Academy, something that nearly never happens.

The big victor on the night, though, was "The Shape of Water", recipient of the best picture Oscar.

"I thought it wasn't going to work".

Asked if there was anything about awards season that inspired him, he joked, "I often joked that if there's a "Get Out 2" it will take place at an awards show".

"I don't know if it's possible, as basketball players we're really supposed to shut up and dribble, said Bryant".
