Oscars 2018: Jordan Peele wins Oscar for Best original screenplay award

Oscars 2018: Jordan Peele wins Oscar for Best original screenplay award

"It began as me wanting to make a film in my favorite genre", said Peele, who also bagged best director honors.

Peele became the first black screenwriter to win an Oscar for best original screenplay, and his speech reflected his gratitude, though not before he had a little fun with the audience.

Peele also reacted to his historic Oscar win on Twitter.

NO ONE will forget the chaotic final moments of last year's Academy Awards when the wrong film was announced as the best picture victor. He triumphed over front-runners The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

The prize for best actor went to American-French rising star Timothee Chalamet, whose acclaimed performance as a lovelorn teen in "Call Me By Your Name" has seen him win numerous awards.

Interestingly, Ivory is also the oldest-ever BAFTA victor as well for the same movie.

Peele says he didn't think Get Out would ever make it to the big screen because it was too "out there".

"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, who told somebody to buy a ticket, thank you".

He continued, "To the cast and crew, I love you, thank you so much".

But if Gerwig or Peele are going to create history they'll have to beat Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Paul Thomas Anderson (Phantom Thread) and frontrunner Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water).

Christine Teigen said, "My first jump of the night!"

Zendaya wrote, "Get out!".
