"Get Out" writer-director Jordan Peele made history this weekend, becoming the first African-American to win the Best Original Screenplay Oscar. And no one was happier for the onetime Comedy Central star than his friend and former castmate, Keegan-Michael Key.
Key, the other half of the titular duo from the dearly departed sketch series "Key & Peele," was watching the ceremony with some other celebs (including Colin Hanks) at a party nearby, and literally jumped for joy when his pal was announced as the winner. Photos captured of the sweet reaction depict Key standing on a chair and triumphantly throwing his hands in the air, shouting, and grinning broadly while clutching the hand of another partygoer.
