90th Oscars Onstage Transcript: Writing – Original Screenplay

SPEECH BY: Jordan Peele
FILM: “Get Out”

JORDAN PEELE: Okay, thank you. You guys are going to mess up my jet ski, hold up. This means so much to me. I stopped writing this movie about 20 times because I thought it was impossible. I thought it wasn’t going to work. I thought no one would ever make this movie. 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. So I want to dedicate this to all the people who raised my voice and let me make this movie. Donna, Ron at Universal, everybody, QC, Sean, Ted, Bea, Jason at Blumhouse. You guys, thank you so much. To the cast and crew, I love you, thank you so much. My wife, who supported me through this whole process. My mother who taught me to love even in the face of hate. And to everybody who went and saw this movie. Everybody who bought a ticket, who told somebody to buy a ticket, thank you. I love you for shouting out at the theater, for shouting out at the screen. Let’s keep going, Brian Roberts, thank you. I love you all, thank you so much.
