    "Every time a brick wall gets put up that is putting me in a position where I have a stronger choice than I started with."

    A great, timeless thought I love being brought up. Limitations forces creativity in any medium. Creativity is what makes a good piece of art great. Accept your limits as challenges and overcome them, not succumb to them.

    I feel/felt like I couldn't be a gay filmmaker because there's no one out there like me making films of worth. This gives me hope.

    What I love about Get Out is not only the dialogue itself, but even little mannerisms, perhaps the mood of the film, everything is written in the script. Everything was coming out of his head. And the fact that he directed it and it was his vision, it really shows what a skilled filmmaker he is that he could bring his own writing to life. It was very original, even in direction.

    BOSS NASS Year ago

    I would have voted for Get Out a third time

    I'm really happy Jordan peele won.. Love him but why is BBC saying he is the first black winner.... He is biracial. Why are black so insecure they need to often include mix people as them.. He obviously gonna accept all the praise but we are not the same

      Alex Daniel I'm half black and its black America not black people... Every other black person in the world don't relate to black Americans

    • Alex Daniel
      Alex Daniel Year ago

      king last king last I agree, which is what explains the white working class. But it seems your constant undermining of black people through back handed comments like the one you just made, already proves the prejudice you have towards them anyway. So nothing I can say will sway your opinion on them, making this conversation pointless.

    • king last
      king last Year ago

      Alex Daniel its simply about power. People with the power wants to keep that power if you accept that then you will understand... The most vulnerable people are always exploited not because of the race but because of their vulnerabilities & weakness and the idea is kept alive by people who believe in white Supremecy..

    • Alex Daniel
      Alex Daniel Year ago

      And going back to mix. What does that mean? Because the majority of black people and white people are mixed, but that doesn't factor at all when it comes to real life. Police harassment, red lining and ghettoisation, racism in the work place, prolonged sentencing in the justice system.

    This movie wasn't very good and actually stole a joke from a Louis CK special. I don't understand this win. But hey. Nothing matters.

    • Adrian Daniel Botnariu

      TheGhost I can't remember the exact joke. It was in the scene where the protagonist meets the parents and the father goes on and on about something or another. He basically did a full Louie bit.

      Perris K. Fortson THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!! Yes, I meant to write in all CAPS!!!! Go forth and do the same with your dreams! Don’t let anybody get in your way, not even YOU! Let’s follow Auntie Maxine Waters’ example and reclaim our time!

      Rory Douthard maaaannn listen: I'm currently think about dropping everything right now and just moving to NYC to pursue my acting career..I know that everyone says that acting, writing (or literally anything that has to do with the arts) isn't a guaranteed career, but FUCK THEM. at the end of the day, we have a limited time on this Earth, so why not jump head first into our dreams?! I'm sorry about you mom btw, I've unfortunately been there as well. I know I don't know you or her, but I'm sure that she would want you to go and pursue your love of writing! It's also nice to see people like Jordan Peele win accolades like this (especially for me being a fellow black artist). All of this to say: if writing is truly your love, you GO and PURSUE it!!! And even if (Lord forbid) it doesn't work out, at least you can say you TRIED!

    • Rory Douthard

      hYBRYDcOBRA which lets me know we can do ANYTHING we want! I LEGIT want to quit my day job RIGHT NOW and pursue writing, which I have put off since my mother died THIRTEEN years ago. I think I might’ve been happier than Keegan-Michael Key was last night!

      MrSnow1961 it's not anti-white. Yes the villains in this movie are rich white people but it's overall theme is about how even open minded white people can say and do things that are racist. Peele discusses it further in an interview.

    • MrSnow1961

    There were a lot of good Movies this year. To the point I wanted all of them to Win. I just kept hoping Get Out would win something for JORDAN PEELE!!! I honestly thought Get Out winning Best Picture would be WAY TOO COOL to happen. Or Best Director especially because he had some Stanley Kubrick / Alfred Hitchcock style which I highly dug... plus the Acting... plus the Music... but most importantly, the SCREENPLAY!!! Best Original Screenplay OFFICIAL!!!
    As much as I am interested in who gets "Best Director" or "Best Picture"... it's BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY that usually shows how special a film was because of it's characters. This will only push Jordan Peele further. "From the Writer and Director of GET OUT comes..."

    • mymy
      mymy Year ago +5

      I kept chanting Get Out, Get Out, Get Out all night. I wanted it to win best picture and director so badly! Still, best OG screenplay for a first time writer/director is not so bad. I'm looking forward to Jordan's next film! He's going to be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years, and there is NO doubt in my mind he will be up on that stage again!

  • BigZ7337

      Do you realize the story is a social commentary on the history of racism in our country? I recommend you enter "Jordan Peele, Get Out , Q&A" into youtube, and listen to him answer questions about his writing/directing process and why he made the movie. Do some research before you flippantly say the script would've worked just as well the other way around, just because you are white and felt some way at a black get together. The film isn't about feeling uncomfortable in a situation where you're not the majority. It's about systemic oppression and racism. I sat for hours and listened to what Jordan wanted to say with the movie , and I learned a lot.

    • Andreas M
      Andreas M Year ago

      The guys point was it would not have got the recognition as the material in a white society would not allow doesn't mean I agree & Whether relevant or not his mum is a white woman (think about it? Not relevant! At all it was a good film full stop.. and I 100% understand he's perceived and chooses to be black as my mates do, it's pride and I completely agree! Inversely the same coukd be said about a lion and a tiger a dog and a cat up & down blah blah good film though 👏🏼👏🏼 thouroghly deserved and that's a 🎬
