    I am not asking where it should compete. And I am not asking if you think it has a chance. I am asking you what you to predict what the Golden Globes will categorize it as.

    I am fairly sure this will compete in comedy. The Globes are notorious for putting dramas in the comedy category. Get Out is categorized by many as a Horror Comedy hybrid. It has satiric messages and Lil Rel’s character is comedic relief.

    I would personally place it in drama but I predict that this will get categorized as a comedy at the Globes.

    I’ve never heard such thing before,  though. Only from you, only here. lol still love you!

    Like I said in the other thread, abusing black people is not a fun thing in overall, and especially for the topic-sensitive Hollywood. I personally didn’t even care for Lil Rel’s moments tbh, he felt so out of place with his fun lines. That’s being said, it’s exactly a situation where there is a horror film and many different characters in it. But 99% of the film is dramatic, shocking and bizarre. Not funny.

    This is a comedy. People who say it isn’t a comedy whatsoever do not understand the movie. There were satiric undertones. Yes it was horrific on the surface but similar to Birdman there were hilarious satiric points between the lines.

    Many people categorize it as a comedy. I’ve seen other people on this site agree with me.

    Okay, seriously. Spy is a comedy. Bridesmaids is a comedy. Get Out is not. I don’t care about the satiric lines. You guys are mentioning small details which are relevant, but not genre-changing. It’s a horror. Or a horror satire. It’s not a horror comedy. Or a comedy. I don’t buy the comedy category placement, if it’s between drama and comedy, I’d still go for drama. The basic topic is serious and not funny. No matter what.

    Next you’ll be saying that The Hangover was a prestige drama and should have been submitted in drama.

    Comedy, as it won’t have a prayer in Drama. (Not that it’s guaranteed anything in the former.)

    I don’t think it has a chance of getting into either at the Globes, but for what it’s worth, it will, and should be submitted as a comedy. It’s satire, it touches on important and dramatic issues but deals with them through horror. But this isn’t a standard horror movie because it doesn’t take itself as seriously as other horror movies. If it wasn’t meant to be funny, (and I’m not talking about only the Lil Rel parts which I did not find funny) then maybe it wasn’t as good as I thought it was because I was laughing at how ridiculous it was which I thought was the intention. I don’t think that Jordan Peele was setting out to make a dramatic horror movie and even if he did the Globes would still categorize it as a comedy because it is a genre movie that the Globes never understand so they put in Comedy. As others have said, they have put way more dramatic movies than this in Comedy at the Globes so even if you think it is technically a drama it wouldn’t be such a crime if it were in Comedy. And if I loved the movie as much as others (I’ve seen it twice but I still don’t love it) I wouldn’t be encouraging it to go into Drama where it has absolutely zero chance of making it in. I don’t think it will make it into Comedy either but it has a better chance there.

    The horror elements of Get Out are taken seriously. But the movie itself knows nobody would accept the movie outright as a brooding stern drama. Misery was a horror comedy. Every time Annie came back into the room either to be sweet or deadly was nerve wracking hilarity.

    I think it’s horror and gory elements will make the globes classify it as a drama. Reminds me of the Hateful Eight being forced into drama in the globes despite being a true black comedy due to it’s violence and gore.

    Get Out is not a comedy movie. It’s a horror/thriller that has some fun moments and horror/thriller movies compete in Drama.

    For better or for worse, it’ll compete in comedy. The satirical moments and Lil’ Rel’s comic relief will be enough for HFPA. I am actually still surprised that they didn’t push Manchester into comedy last year.

    You act like if I would be some stupid-ass shit who thinks that Get Out is not a comedy. Like it’s absurd that I think it’s not. If you think that The Hangover and Get Out has the same comedic level, the problem is in your brain.
