Jordan Peele, Kobe Bryant and More! Check Out the Winners from the 2018 Oscars

It is a wrap for the 90th Academy Awards and this one will one to remember! On Sunday night (March 4), the winners for Hollywood’s biggest films have been announced and made history in the process!

Jordan Peele made history during the ceremony when he became the first African American screenwriter to earn an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for his 2017 blockbuster, Get Out. In the category, Get Out was up against other Hollywood heavy hitters including, Lady Bird (scripted by Greta Gerwig), The Shape of Water (scripted by Guillermo del Toro & Vanessa Taylor), The Big Sick (scripted by Emily V. Gordon & Kumail Nanjiani) and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (scripted by Martin McDonagh).

Peele, whose directorial debut also earned him two Oscar nominations including Best Picture and Best Director, delivered an emotional speech when accepting his first Oscar. “I stopped writing this movie about 20 times because I thought it was impossible,” Peele said. “But I kept coming back to it because I knew if someone let me make this movie, people would hear it and people would see it.”

“To everybody who went and saw this movie, everybody who bought a ticket, who told somebody to buy a ticket — thank you!” he continued.

Starring breakout star Daniel Kaluuya, Get Out became 2017’s most talked about films and its popularity made the social-thriller a blockbuster! The film, which cost only $5 million to produce, raked in over $250 million worldwide – making it 2017’s most profitable film.

Along with Jordan Peele – a congratulations are in order for retired NBA star Kobe Bryant, who took home his first Oscar for Best Animated Short Film for Dear Basketball. The animated short is based on a poem Bryant wrote back in 2015 announcing his retirement from the NBA. As executive producer, the former Los Angeles Lakers star accepted the accolade alongside Disney Animator and author Glen Keane.

“And to Kobe, for writing ‘Dear Basketball’, Keane said during his acceptance speech. “It’s a message for all of us. Whatever form your dream may take, it’s through passion and perseverance that the impossible is possible.”

“I don’t know if it’s possible,” Bryant replied. “I mean, as basketball players, we are really supposed to shut up and dribble. But I am glad we do a little bit more than that.”

“Thank you John Williams for such a wonderful piece of music. Thank you Verizon for believing in the film. Thank you Molly Carter without you we wouldn’t be here,” Bryant continued his speech by thanking his wife and three daughters, saying “You are my inspiration.”
