Jordan Peele is the first Black person to win which Academy Award?

The Question: Jordan Peele is the first Black person to win which Academy Award?

A Best Actor
B Best Original Screenplay
C Best Director

An allegory for race relations, ‘Get Out’ was Peele’s debut as a Hollywood screenwriter-director-producer. Previously known for his comic partnership with Keegan-Michael Key, funnyman Peele became only the sixth Black filmmaker nominated for Best Director. So far, none have won that award, though Peele did take home Best Original Screenplay. In 2021, Peele announced he’s retired from acting to focus on filmmaking—so we assume the Oscars haven’t seen the last of him.

The correct answer is Best Original Screenplay.
