After the Golden Globes snubbed Jordan Peele's Get Out, which many thought deserved a nomination for Best Director and Best Screenplay, tensions were high as Academy Award nominations were announced on Tuesday, January 23.
Fortunately, fans of the film didn't need to worry about anything.
Jordan Peele's reaction on Twitter was beautiful.
Emotions were running high, as they absolutely should be!
I just spoke to Daniel. You know when you’re on the phone trying to disguise the sound of an ugly cry? I failed at that.— Jordan Peele (@JordanPeele) January 23, 2018
Right now I’m just thinking about everyone who bought a ticket and told someone else to. You did this. Thank you. ✊🏾— Jordan Peele (@JordanPeele) January 23, 2018
As if the Oscar nominations weren't enough, the night kept getting better.

Peele's film nominations are historic in several ways.
Jordan Peele is the third person to receive Best Picture, Directing and Writing nominations for his first feature film as a director, per the Academy. The others? Warren Beatty for "Heaven Can Wait" and James L. Brooks for "Terms of Endearment."— Frank Pallotta (@frankpallotta) January 23, 2018
Fans couldn't be happier...
Most people agree the nomination is well-deserved.
Congratulations to the entire Get Out team! If there was ever a time to ugly cry... it's now.
