Oscars 2018: See Keegan-Michael Key’s Sweet Reaction to BFF Jordan Peele’s ‘Get Out’ Win Album

“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.

Great moment here when Jordan Peele wins for Get Out !

The comedian also took to Twitter himself to share some love for Peele, writing, “Congrats to my partner in laughs @JordanPeele on his first Oscar,” and adding in the awesome hashtag, #oscarssopeele. The pair ran into each other later that night at the Vanity Fair Oscars party, and shared a sweet embrace.

Congrats to my partner in laughs @JordanPeele on his first Oscar. #oscarssopeele. #VFOscars

I was absolutely beaming at my wife on our wedding day and I didn’t look as happy and proud as Keegan-Michael Key does here.

“I promise to love you as much as Key loves Peele” should be in all wedding vows in 2018.

May we all have BFFs who love us as much as Key loves Peele.
