Jordan Peele Dedicates Original Screenplay Oscar To Those "Who Raised My Voice"

Jordan Peele Dedicates Original Screenplay Oscar To Those

In the last 25 years I've been living in a country all of our own.

Chalamet is also nominated for the Oscars this year and Ivory chose to root for his actor in this novel manner.

The filmmaker was also nominated for Best Director, while Get Out is up for Best Picture and Daniel Kaluuya was in the running for Best Actor. One of the horror movies he starred in, "Get Out" has scooped an award for Best Original screenplay.

Although its no laughing matter, Jordan Peele said his movie's message is as real as it gets.

"I've often joked if there's a Get Out 2, it will take place at an awards show, where it might look something like this", he said, referring to an Oscars theater and press room made up largely of white faces.

Jordan Peele is officially an Oscar victor!

The prize for best actor went to American-French rising star Timothee Chalamet, whose acclaimed performance as a lovelorn teen in "Call Me By Your Name" has seen him win numerous awards.

The Time's Up initiative is not planning a coordinated protest on Sunday - like the striking red carpet "blackout" at the Golden Globes.

Only two other people have accomplished that feat, according to the Academy.

A host of stars - including Jane Fonda, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Patrick Stewart and Richard Jenkins - sported Time's Up badges, civil rights ribbons as well as orange United States flags backing gun control.

The Shape of Water didn't turn out to be the sweeper that everyone expected it to be, but it won where it counts.

Heading into awards season, nobody expected Get Out to actually get a ton of recognition.

Disney-Pixar's "Coco" seems a near-sure bet to pick up the award for best animated film.
