When my husband told me that Daniel Kaluuya had been nominated at the Golden Globes in the Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy category for Get Out, I went all thoughtful, thinking that maybe there was some dark humor in the film. Maybe they did it for a reason. I was willing to give the Golden Globes the benefit of the doubt. And then I watched the movie.
To be honest, when this movie got an Oscar nod, I stared at the poster for a long time trying to figure it out. I had no idea what I was in for when I decided to watch and review Oscar-nominated films from the 8 biggest categories. Whatever notion I had in mind about this movie, it definitely wasn’t this!
What do I say about this movie except ask the makers why they would do this to us? There are many who say that there is not much of a story in the film; that it could have been better. They say it just tells us everyday events of a Sacramento girl.
