Get Out keeps racking up the awards. On Saturday, Jordan Peele’s directorial debut film won the Ray Bradbury Award for Outstanding Dramatic Presentation at the Nebulas. The ceremony, which is awarded by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, acknowledges the greatest works in—you guessed it—science fiction and fantasy released in the United States.
Back in March, Peele became the first African American to win the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. He also won the award in that same category at the Writers Guild of America and Critics’ Choice. At this year’s Film Independent Spirit Awards, Get Out took home Best Feature and Best Director. It was the only ceremony, aside from the NAACP Image Awards, to acknowledge Peele’s work as director.
Even though Peele has made strides towards putting his fingerprints on a variety of different projects, Get Out continues to receive accolades for its groundbreaking work. Earlier this month, Amazon announced that they were picking up The Hunt, a drama series about Nazi hunters in the 1970s. Peele has also produced Spike Lee's latest joint, BlacKkKlansman, a film based on the true story of a black detective who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan while working at the Colorado Springs Police Department. Then, there's his next film, Us. The details remain sparse, but as a "new nightmare" from Peele, we're already hooked.
