2018 Oscars Red Carpet Couples

Jordan Peele made history as the first black screenwriter to win an Oscar for best original screenplay for "Get Out". And, on a $4.6 million budget to make, Get Out made $34 million in its opening weekend and Peele went on to take the honor of becoming the first African American writer-director to earn $100 million in his debut film.

Actor and director Jordan Peele won best original screenplay for his film "Get Out".

Peele beat stiff competition from Guillermo del Toro and Vanessa Taylor for Best Picture victor The Shape of Water, Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird, Emily Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani for The Big Sick and Martin McDonagh for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. "I don't know what it is now, but there are some loose ends... you know the movie", he said.

Peele also thanked his mother for teaching him how to love in the face of hate.

Peele is just the fourth Black writer nominated for Best Original screenplay.

Accepting the award, the filmmaker said: "This means so much to me".

Deeply emotional. This one was personal. thank you for being our humble hero!

The "fish sex" movie won Best Picture, indie mainstay Sufjan Stevens shared a category with a song from Hugh Jackman's circus miracle, and hot dog cannons are a thing.

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

Peele and the "Coco" duo were among seven other nominees with connections to the city up for awards during the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted ceremony.

Jordan Peele can now call himself an Academy Award victor. Daniela Vega, the Chilean star of best foreign language film, A Fantastic Woman, became the first openly transgender person to present at the Oscars. You might recall Williams posting a photo on Instagram last spring saying she "fell in love" with Fairhope while filming the movie.

Peele said he is using this win and paying it forward to young people because when he was young "I didn't believe there was a place for me", he said.
