Oscar history was made last night when Jordan Peele won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for his historically complex, strange and incisive movie ‘Get Out.' He become the first African American to win in this category. Here to discuss his historic win are our Circa Pop Live hosts Shira Lazar, Ryan Mitchell and special guest — actor Nathaniel Potvin, who can be seen on Netflix’s first in house sitcom, “Alexa and Katie.” The trio are big fans of Jordan Peele and are excited to discuss this.
In the video above, the trio goes into his star studded marriage to comedian Chelsea Perretti. Shira goes into the adorable photos of Keegan Michael Key celebrating Jordan Peele’s incredible win. Ryan then says that he wants best friends who could celebrate him just like Key celebrates Peele!
The group then talks about how they’re shocked its taken this long for an African American to win “Best Original Screenplay,” and Ryan attributes this historic win to the influx of younger Oscar voters.
