Best: ‘Get Out' Wins Best Screenplay

This one made us literally jump up from our chairs and cheer. Jordan Peele's writing and directorial debut is arguably the most important movie of 2017 – a piercing, pointed examination of race relations in America that's riotously funny and truly scary to boot. And Peele's screenplay is a thing of genius: He distills real fears into a brilliant horror metaphor, meticulously realized. "I thought no one would ever make this movie," Peele said in his acceptance speech. "But I kept coming back to it because I knew if someone let me make this movie, that people would hear it and people would see it." The Shape of Water may have won the night, but mark our words: Get Out is the movie that people will still be talking about in 20 years.
