One of the most talked-about films of the year, Jordan Peele's horror/social commentary Get Out earned four Oscar nods on Tuesday as the nominees for the 90th Academy Awards were announced.

Universal Pictures

The film, directed and written by Jordan Peele, was nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor (for Daniel Kaluuya), Best Director (for Peele), and Best Original Screenplay.

Peele tweeted his reaction to the news earlier this morning.
