Jordan Peele Makes History: He Is The First African-American Original Screenplay Winner At The Oscars
March 7, 2018
When, in 2016, Jordan Peele started shooting "Get Out," he was not even sure the idea was good enough to make it to the screen. But little did he know! The movie not only became a great hit but also received the Academy Award for the Best Original Screenplay!
The script idea came in 2008. After having worked on it for almost five years, Peele still had no intention of turning it into a movie. So, imagine his surprise when a producer Sean McKittrick bought the story idea nearly at the first mention of it!
