‘Get Out’ Submitted To Golden Globes As A Comedy

Get Out is a comedy?! Who knew?

The breakout horror flick of the year, which grossed over $253 million at the box office, will be competing at the Golden Globes as a Comedy.

Here’s the scoop via Entertainment Weekly:

EW has confirmed with Universal, the film’s distributor, that the Jordan Peele-directed horror-satire will compete as a comedy at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards, where awards pundits had already pegged it a likely contender regardless of its placement. A source close to the Globes says Blumhouse, which produced the film, entered it for consideration as a comedy.

Fans of the film are confused and pissed.

Jordan Peele made light of the banter by tweeting:

Meanwhile…Lil Rel Howery, who starred in the film as the unlikely hero, thought categorizing Get Out as a comedy was “weird.”

Nominations for the 75th Golden Globe Awards will be announced Monday, Dec. 11, with the awards telecast to follow on Sunday, Jan. 7 at 8:00 p.m. ET on NBC.
