Oscar Award: Meet the first black writer to win Best Screenplay award



After holding the box office spell bound in 2017 with his break out film “Get Out”, Jordan Peele made history at the Oscars when his name was announced as the winner of the Best Screenplay.

Peele becomes the first African American writer to win Best Screenplay at the Oscars.

A feat that almost didn’t happen, according to Peele in his acceptance speech.

“I stopped writing this movie about 20 times because I thought it was impossible. I thought it wasn’t going to work. I thought no one would ever make this movie,” said Peele.

It was a proud moment for movie-goers, including some of Peele’s celebrity supporters.
