2018 Oscars Red Carpet Couples

Get Out creator Jordan Peele won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay Sunday night, and everyone was elated. Not only is he the first African-American to receive nominations in the writing, directing and best pictures category but also the first one to win Best Original Screenplay - and on his directorial debut, at that.

After his big win, Jordan took to Twitter and said, "I just won an Oscar".

Jordan Peele transitioned from primarily being known as a sketch comedy actor for his work on Comedy Central's Key and Peele, to becoming an Academy Award nominated writer and director (now winner) with his first movie.

He also thanked the film's team, his wife, mother and "to everybody who went and saw this movie".

A '9 To 5' Reboot Is On The Way
In the age of #MeToo and Time's Up, Dolly Parton believes it's the ideal time to remake her hit film, " 9 to 5 ". But Parton says they'd better not take too long.

Best Adapted Screenplay was given to Call Me By Your Name (and not The Disaster Artist). I love you for shouting out at the theater, for shouting out at the screen. As a little kid I lived in the projects and you're the people I watched, you're the people that made me want to be an actor. "I wrote it more as something that would be fun to write and something that would help me get better as an artist".

Last night was a little different, as the former Key & Peele star took to social media to express his utter disbelief at leaving last night's ceremony an Academy Award victor.

"The Big Sick" (Emily V. Gordon & Kumail Nanjiani) and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" ( Martin McDonagh) completed the list of original screenplay nominees.

Peele told The Hollywood Reporter that he wouldn't be against the idea of a Get Out franchise, saying, "I will definitely, seriously consider it".

This year's Academy Awards was a bit different from those in the past.

Get Out began the evening with four nominations, including one for best picture.

"It was a cathartic thing, I wouldn't describe it as fun", said Peele.
