Just heard there's an active whisper campaign against Get Out. That blows.— Sasha Stone (@AwardsDaily) January 7, 2018
- Sasha Stone tweeted out today that there is an active whisper campaign against Get Out. While Kris Talley replied back by saying that this normally happens with all contenders, Stone states that it’s not usually the case against a film that’s not a front runner.
- When films were submitted for consideration last year, the studio behind the film (corrected) put Get Out in Comedy/Musical as opposed to Drama. This irked Jordan Peele, who rightfully spoke out against it. Many film journalists have said that this rubbed the HFPA the wrong way which is why the film was snubbed in certain categories.
- Keep in mind the HFPA chose to nominate Gary Oldman, the same man who went on a rant about the HFPA.
