'Get Out' Will Be Labeled A Comedy For Golden Globe Awards
Jordan Peele‘s successful feature film debut Get Out will be competing at the Golden Globe Awards as a comedy.
If Get Out actually receives a nomination then it will likely find star Daniel Kaluuya going up against possible Hugh Jackman (The Greatest Showman), Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick), James Franco (The Disaster Artist), Matt Damon (Downsizing), and Steve Carell (Battle of the Sexes), according to a report from Entertainment Weekly.
The report also notes that although it does not seem likely that Get Out will receive in supporting nominations, it is possible that Peele could get a Globe nomination for directing if the horror-satire movie gains enough support from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Nominations for the 75th Golden Globe Awards will be announced Monday, December 11, with the awards telecast to follow on January 8 at 8:00 p.m. ET on NBC.
Last month, Peele crashed a college course at UCLA based on Get Out. Titled, “Sunken Place: Racism, Survival, and Black Horror Aesthetic,” the course’s professor Tananarive Due surprised her students for the first day of class with an appearance from Peele himself. He had posed as a student throughout the class before Due brought him up to speak to the students about the film.
“Today we snuck Jordan Peele into a back row while I was screening a scene from Get Out in my black horror class,” Due had recounted on Twitter. “Then he raised his hand.”
