In light of the film receiving four major Oscar nominations, Lil Rel Howery revealed in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! (2003) that he wasn't invited to the Oscars, citing that he wasn't important enough. Jimmy Kimmel, who was also hosting the ceremony, stated that he was going to get him into the ceremony. Howery stated, "We called and they were looking for my ticket and they're like, 'Uh, you're not in the first group. The first tickets they give out, I'm not on that list!" Kimmel responded saying, "Listen, I'll get you in, don't worry. I'm the host of it. You had a big part in that movie. It's not like you had a little scene." See more »

600th Review: As Lingering and Effective As You Would Want It To Be
Get Out is full of touches and surprises, strong acting, excellent direction, and above it, it's a ride, a trip to a place Hollywood doesn't normally go - it offers a unique experience - and in this age of copycat, cookie cutter safe choice cinema, it stands out by a mile.
Get Out is that rare beast - a film that leaves you satisfied yet pondering. We objected to its constant referral as a horror film - it's an effective thriller with mild horror elements - but it is not a gore/slasher movie - this is more about getting under the skin, and inside the mind, of the viewer.
The plot is simple: girlfriend takes boyfriend home. Home is not what home seems to be. Fun ensues. The genius of this is the way it plays on both white and black perceptions - we asked how the film would be if you reversed all the roles (pretty darn effective) etc;
Get out and see it.
