"It's very special and I think that goes for all areas of inclusion. You're not a failure if you don't get this, but I nearly didn't do it because I didn't believe there was a place for me".

Peele, 39, kept his acceptance speech relatively brief, appearing to be in disbelief.

The film follows interracial couple Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), who have reached the meet-the-parents stage of dating.

Oprah Winfrey, meanwhile, said she was "so happy and proud" to see the star recognised for his first film as writer-director. He started getting awards notice in 2008, when he shared in an Emmy nomination for a sketch he wrote for MADtv.

Before Get Out, he was best known as one half of the Comedy Central duo "Key and Peele" alongside Keegan-Michael Key, with whom he produced the 2016 comedy Keanu. Photos captured of the sweet reaction depict Key standing on a chair and triumphantly throwing his hands in the air, shouting, and grinning broadly while clutching the hand of another partygoer.

And indeed as the last show in this very long season, made even longer thanks to the Olympics, and with an unprecedented pressure to address all the ills of society and 90 years of movies it was perhaps always going to be too big a feat for one group of entertainers to tackle in a single almost four-hour production.

He acknowledged his win was a heady experience for a young man who once contemplated abandoning his dreams of a film career. I know if I won an Oscar for my first theatrical script, I would say something similar.

Get Out was made in 23 days, and Peele points out that he worked out a scrappy group of people - some he said he "shouldn't be able to afford".

Robert Lopez, who won a second Oscar with wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez on Sunday, is already part of a rare group of entertainers to achieve the EGOT - an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. "I felt like a had the privilege of being a pirate captain with a swarthy group of bad asses".

Aside from the Best Original Screenplay category, Peele was also nominated for the Best Director and Best Picture Oscars.

It was the first award for Ivory, who was half of one of the most acclaimed independent filmmaking duos in movie history.

Asked if there was anything about awards season that inspired him, he joked, "I often joked that if there's a 'Get Out 2′ it will take place at an awards show".
