Jordan Peele won the 2018 Oscar award for Best Screen Play for Get Out. The win surprised many including Jordan who Tweeted shortly after the win, “I just won an Oscar. WTF?!?”

In his acceptance speech he said:

“This means so much to me. I stopped writing this movie about 20 times because I thought it was impossible. I thought it wasn’t gonna work, I thought no one would ever make this movie, but I kept coming back to it because I knew if someone let me make this movie, then people would hear it and people would see it. To the cast and crew, I love you, thank you so much. My wife, who supported me through this whole process. My mother, who taught me to love even in the face of hate. And to everybody who went and saw this movie. Everybody who bought a ticket, told somebody to buy a ticket, thank you. I love you for shouting out at the theater, for shouting out at the screen. I love all, thank you so much goodnight.”
