The horror satire film “Get Out” will compete in the Comedy/Musical category at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards, reports EW.
Award pundits had already pegged Jordon Peele's directorial debut as a likely contender, regardless of whether it was up against dramas or comedies.
In a tweet, Peele made fun of the Golden Globes' decision to place the film in the Comedy/Musical category, saying, “‘Get Out’ is a documentary.”
Other potential contenders in the category are rumored to include “The Big Sick,” “I,” “Tonya,” “The Disaster Artist,” “Lady Bird,” and “The Greatest Showman.”
“Get Out” was released in February after a strong showing at Sundance. The film, which had a $4.5 million budget, went on to earn more than $250 million worldwide.
Nominations for the 75th Golden Globe Awards will be announced December 11. The show will air Sunday, January 7 at 8 PM on NBC.
