Get Out might have nominations for four Academy Awards, but some people still aren't impressed.
The critically-acclaimed thriller/comedy is nominated for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Director, and Best Actor. On top of that, earlier this month it was nominated for Best Musical or Comedy Motion Picture and Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy. With a near-perfect 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, people are calling it brilliant and a true stand-out, one of those people being Chrissy Teigen.
John said I can’t talk shit about any nominated movies so I will simply say Get Out and I,Tonya should win everything also one of the highly nominated movies sucks— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 23, 2018
There is literally nothing predictable about Get Out. You’re telling me the entire movie you were like “yeah he’s gonna be trapped in the sunken place and that woman is really a white grandma and that spoon is really gonna fuck him over at some point”— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 23, 2018
Classic “sunken place/there’s a white person inside of me pls help” narrative. Just like all the other “sunken place/there’s a white person inside of me pls help” movies ever.— Jeen Grayyy (@JeanGreasy) January 23, 2018
Some things feel *inevitable* but that’s nooottttt the same thing as “predictable”. It’s instead a function of a masterfully built sense of creeping dread.— spooky year round (@PossibleMermaid) January 23, 2018
Thank you! It was insisted upon that I watch it. It ended and I believe I said, “That’s it?” I appreciate the commentary and general societal statement that it was making, but agreed...boring and predictable.— Jen Scantland (@rikersit) January 23, 2018
It was NOT predictable. Yeah you could see a trap. Obviously. Everyone could but all the details— there’s no way you saw all of that coming. It was a brilliant movie.— Taylor 💋 (@__LizLaughLove) January 23, 2018
Get Out was NOT predictable. There were certain points that made it clear where it was going but that’s just storytelling, you couldn’t have known without these purposeful indications put in to help you understand what was going to happen, and you don’t really know until its over— Zara (@Zara_D_C) January 23, 2018
