Black Excellence At The Oscars {Video} Jordan Peele Win Best Screenplay For Get Out & Kobe Bryant Win For Animated Short Film

Published On March 5, 2018 | By admin | FAME, Local & Worldwide News

One of the best moments of this year’s Oscars had to be when Jordan Peele won in the Best Original Screenplay category for ‘Get Out.’ In his acceptance speech Peele revealed he quit writing the script for ‘Get Out’ twenty times, but always found himself returning to the idea. Good thing he did… Peele is one of only four black screenwriters to be nominated, and the first to win. It’s been 90 years of Oscars so that is a damned shame indeed.

Kobe Bryant’s film with Glen Keane, ‘Dear Basketball’ won in the Animated Film (Short) category as well. Kobe is the first black winner in the animated short category.
