Jordan Peele Tells Stephen Colbert 'Get Out' is a "Historical Documentary"

Get Out Movie Daniel Kaluuya

"Peele similarly joked about the nomination earlier on Wednesday on Twitter, saying, "'Get Out' is a documentary".

Jordan Peele may have an impressive comedic background, but with his debut feature film Get Out, he served up a not-so-easy-to-categorize combination of horror and satire.

Not surprisingly, Jordan Peele, the writer and director of the film, isn't laughing.

Colbert also remarked on the fact that "Get Out" has a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and asked Peele what he thought the missing 1% was.

Google Docs Outage Outrages Twitter, Google Responds
Google tweeted nearly an hour earlier that it was "actively investigating an issue with Docs not loading". Google Docs was inaccessible for a "significant subset" of users on Wednesday.

The premise of the movie surrounds Rose (played by Allison Williams) who brings her black boyfriend, Chris, (played by Daniel Kaluuya) home to meet her parents.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association met yesterday to work out the categories for the Golden Globes and it seems Get Out has officially been placed in the Comedy category, according to the Variety Awards editor Kristopher Tapley.

Despite his confusion at the film being labelled a comedy and his statement about it being a documentary, Peele suggested that making a horror and a comedy were actually quite similar processes. Matt Damon-starrer "The Martian", which is about a lone astronaut surviving on Mars, was also nominated in the musical/comedy category in 2015.

The movie will have a spot at the award show no matter what, but placing it in a category such as drama or horror may see it ruled out in comparison to its competitors.
