In the 90th Academy Awards live from Hollywood, the feeling of change was apparent as Peele – who is only the fourth black writer to be nominated in the category at the Oscars – made history with his victory.

While Get Out failed to land the big prize, the film was recognised as Peele was nominated for Best Director and lead actor Daniel Kaluuya was in the running for Best Actor. Speaking on the red carpet, Peele said: “we’re never done with the conversation of race”.
