Now you must call Get Out, "Academy Award–Winning Film, Get Out." And all we have to say is, "Hell, yes." When writer and director Jordan Peele's name was announced as the winner of the Best Screenplay Oscar, the audience, social media, and everyone on my couch erupted in wild applause. But it wasn't just regular movie-goers who were thrilled—pretty much all of Hollywood lost it on Twitter.
