Jordan Peele, 'Get Out' Stars Have A Breakout Night At The Oscars

Making history and turning heads.

'Get Out' stars Daniel Kaluuya, Jordan Peele and Betty Gabriel shone bright at Sunday's Academy Awards.

"Get Out" was trending on Twitter on Oscars Sunday even before the red carpet even began. As the stars of the "documentary" — as Jordan Peele, the film's writer and director, described the thriller — started to arrive, fans were rooting for them even as news emerged that some Oscar voters still hadn't seen the horror film, which has earned widespread praise for its smart commentary on racism.

From there, the night only got more historic.

Peele became the first African American to win an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, with only four other African Americans ever nominated before in the category. "I want to dedicate this to all the people who raised my voice and let me make this movie," Peele said during his acceptance speech.

He also thanked his wife and his mother, the latter of whom he says taught him to love even in the face of hate.

Fans were thrilled, and this was was our reaction:

On the Oscars red carpet, all eyes were on 'Get Out''s Betty Gabriel:

Williams went for an retro-glamour look, with her hair styled in smooth waves and simple, neutral makeup.

Meanwhile, Daniel Kaluuya, who was nominated for Best Actor for his role in "Get Out," looked like he was having a ball. Here he is sharing a moment with icon Mary J. Blige, who made Oscar history herself:

No big deal. Then he teamed up with another rising star, Timothée Chalamet, for some red carpet posing:

And he didn't forget about his other co-stars, Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong'o, from another blockbuster film you may have heard of: Black Panther.
