Somewhere in my junkpile are my 19 tickets. This beats my Back To The Future record (13 times in theaters) #GetOut was simply the best most fun time I’ve ever had in a movie theater @JordanPeele congrats https://t.co/JchlnA9LmR— Questlove Gomez (@questlove) January 23, 2018
Get Out was made for less than $5M boys and girls...it’s not always about major resources. Go make something great with what you have! https://t.co/k1op11L9Jv— Will Packer (@willpowerpacker) January 23, 2018

There are no words to capture the magnificence of this film. Or the satisfaction I felt this morning when I saw it earn FOUR Oscar nods. I’ve never had the wind knocked out of me or wanted to leap out of my seat so many times in a movie theatre. I’ve never wanted to offer a round of drinks to the entire theatre audience just so we can sit and dissect the experience that this film takes you on. I’ve never referred so many people (black, white, young, old, and everyone in between) to see any piece of art, ever. I’ve never reflected more on a storyline’s personal and cultural relevance. I’ve never felt so deeply that a project deserves the highest form of recognition. Because no film has ever felt more urgent. @jordanpeele you are a GENIUS—this generation needs you. This story was so profoundly told and we cannot wait to see what else is swimming inside your mind and heart. We will be watching. We will be rooting you on. We are ALL coming with you on #Oscar’s night. 🥇🖤 🏆 #bestpicture STUNNING IMAGE REGRAMMED VIA @lenawaithe
