Get Out is headed to this year’s Golden Globes and insiders have now revealed it will compete in the comedy/musical category as a comedy. This is exciting news to hear as this particular nomination placement increases the chances for the 2017 film to leave with a win. Many people could be wondering why the film is a labeled a comedy but according to reports this kind of weird placement isn’t so uncommon. Plus you can’t deny that the project had some hilarious moments, thanks to Lil Rel Howery. The Jordan Peele film will join Hollywood’s best on January 8th.
Get Out is looking to rope in Hollywood Foreign Press Association voters for the Golden Globes’ comedy/musical categories. EW has confirmed 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. The move probably allows Get Out more wiggle room when it comes to landing an above-the-line nomination for its key player, star Daniel Kaluuya, who will now likely square off against potential comedy/musical foes like Hugh Jackman (The Greatest Showman), Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick), James Franco (The Disaster Artist), Matt Damon (Downsizing), and Steve Carell (Battle of the Sexes).
