The Golden Globes has “Get Out” fans talking about what the movie really stands for.

Jordan Peele’s box office hit “Get Out” may have its funny moments, but labeling it as a comedy is a bit of a stretch.

The 2018 Golden Globes are already under fire after Entertainment Weekly reported that Jordan Peele’s hit film “Get Out” would be categorized as a comedy for the awards show. The Golden Globe Awards does not have a category for horror, which is the genre the film is typically classified as by critics and viewers.

Although the movie does employ satire, Peele has rejected the idea that it’s a comedy.

“I don’t think of it as a comedy,” Peele said earlier this year. “I think it has a satire to it. I took it very seriously as a thriller. I’m trying to scare people. There are a lot of laughs in it. But there’s no jokes in it.”

The internet went into a bit of a frenzy today after The Hollywood Foreign Press Association determined that the movie will compete as a comedy at the upcoming Golden Globes. If anything, the movie is a satirical horror film, that has a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The premise of the movie surrounds Rose (played by Allison Williams) who brings her black boyfriend, Chris, (played by Daniel Kaluuya) home to meet her parents. During the course of Chris’ visit, he takes the parents odd interactions as a sign of their reaction to the colour of his skin. As the weekend goes on a series of disturbing revelations prove that he was chosen to meet the family for a reason he could have never fathomed.

One of the characters in the film, Rod, (played by LilRel Howery) who for sure plays a funny character, called out the Academy’s actions on Twitter questioning if the motive behind the film was “that unrealistic.”

Jordan even chimed in, seemingly poking fun at whole matter in one simple tweet:

As many other Twitter users went off expressing how ridiculous the Golden Globes are even calling the film a comedy, it’s to be noted that the ruling of the genre is not made randomly. Those who submit the film have to decide what category it falls under and Mashable reports that Universal Pictures submitted Get Out as a comedy, in what can be taken as a strategic move. Since it has a satirical element, putting it in the less contentious comedy field could allow for more recognition as opposed being in the highly competitive drama category.

Get Out has grossed $253 million worldwide despite being made on just a $4.5 million budget. The massive success enabled Peele to become the first black writer-director with $100-million film debut and earned the highest-grossing feature debut for a writer/director of an original screenplay.
