The other half of the duo Key & Peele is exalted at his friend's Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
Jordan Peele is the first black writer to win the Best Original Screeplay during last night's historical Oscar. The script of Get Out tackles racism in plain sight with entertaining quips and a smart progression.
Of course, this important moment couldn't be missed by his long-time friend and working partner Keegan-Michael Key. They created and ran the Emmy-winning sketch comedy series Key and Peele for five seasons. As Peele focused on Get Out, Key continued his acting career in comedy movies like Don't Think Twice and Why Him?.
When Peele won the prize, Key couln't hide his excitement.

He later posted an official congratulation, calling Peele his "partner in laughs."
