Jordan Peele made history and received his first Academy Award tonight for original screenplay (Get Out). ‘Get out’ is an American movie written and directed by Jordan Peele, It was released in February of 2017, and has remained significant to date. Its unique storyline earned it the Oscars award tonight. This is one of the numerous awards Jordan Peele has received for his latest movie.
The movie ‘Get Out’ is a horror tale about a black young man Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his white girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams), with a storyline that relays Chris’s racial encounter with his girlfriend’s family when he paid them a visit. Unlike, Guess Who Is Coming To Dinner this movie is set in a post-racial society where people of different races were supposed to be more accepting of others. Get Out is entirely symbolic. Jordan Peele admits he incorporated the symbols to send a subtle message about racial tension in the American present-day society. He did set up a youtube channel to answer questions pertaining to the movie’s symbolism and also to correct any misconceptions people may have about them.
According to host Kimmy Kimmel*, Jordan Peele is the first person in 90 years to be nominated for best picture, best director, and best original screenplay in the Oscars. I don’t know how true that statement is, but it is an impressive portfolio.
