Kaluuya's nomination is one of the four Get Out has received as it's is one of the most-nominated movies at this year's Oscars. The film has been nominated for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, along with Jordan Peele's nomination for Best Director. Peele made history today by being the third person to earn nominations in three major categories in their directorial debut. He's only the fifth black director to earn a Best Director nomination in Oscar history.
