Grossing $253m at the worldwide box office, Jordan Peele's Get Out was one of the most hyped and widely discussed films in 2017. With a blend of suspense and satire, the horror-cum-thriller is once again in the spotlight after reportedly being submitted to the 2018 Golden Globes as a comedy.

According to Entertainment Weekly, production company Blumhouse, alongside Universal Pictures, would submit the film under the comedy/musical category — potentially competing against The Big Sick, The Disaster Artist, I, Tonya, and Lady Bird.

Jason Blum, founder of the company has argued: "The reason the movie works is because Jordan got the tone right." Whatever that tone may be, critics have argued that this submission should not be taken lightly in regards to the film's dealings with racial tensions. Lil Rel Howery, who starred in Get Out as Rod, posted a tweet stating, "There is nothing funny about racism."

As per EW, reports are also suggesting that this submission is an attempt at securing awards for the film, where there is greater potential to fail in traditional drama categories. To date, Get Out has secured four awards, including Best International Independent Film at the British Independent Film Awards.
