A feat that almost didn’t happen, according to Peele in his acceptance speech.

“I stopped writing this movie about 20 times because I thought it was impossible. I thought it wasn’t going to work. I thought no one would ever make this movie,” said Peele.

It was a proud moment for movie-goers, including some of Peele’s celebrity supporters.

This was how Olivia Munn reacted on Twitter.
