It's Peele's first writing and directing project, and it makes him the first black victor in the category, and only the fourth nominated, after John Singleton, Spike Lee, and Suzanne de Passe.

"This means so much to me", Peele said onstage as he accepted the award. He said he stopped making the film several times because he thought it would never work. "I thought no one would ever make this movie, so I want to dedicate this to everyone who raised my voice and let me make this movie".

Peele also went on to thank his wife, Chelsea Peretti, and his mom, "who taught me to love even in the face of hate".

Only four black film writers have been nominated in the best original screenplay category in Oscars' 90-year history: Suzanne de Passe ("Lady Sings the Blues", 1972), Spike Lee ("Do the Right Thing", 1989) John Singleton ("Boyz n the Hood", 1991) and Peele. "Everybody who bought a ticket, told somebody to buy a ticket, thank you".

"Get Out", released in February 2017, was a slow-building hit - eventually grossing more than $250 million while resonating in pop culture with references to its memorable characters and "sunken place" as a metaphor for race and the feeling of helplessness in America. At last year's Golden Globe it was nominated in the comedy category and the movie has failed to win any accolades at other award shows like the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards and the Golden Globes.
