Jordan Peele – “Get Out”

Jordan Peele already made a huge name for himself as one half of the Comedy Central sketch duo “Key & Peele,” but his 2017 directorial debut solidified his place among the greats. The horror film “Get Out” was one of the top films of the year, not only for grossing $254 million against a $4 million budget, but for it’s poignant exploration of racism which makes it’s NAACP nomination a no-brainer.
