The 39-year-old multi-hyphenate became the first black writer to win Best Original Screenplay for Get Out, but as he explained to reporters backstage after collecting his statuette, the history-making win was more than individual accomplishment.
Get Out, starring Londoner Daniel Kaluuya, was Peele's first attempt at directing a feature film and it also garnered a nomination for best picture.
"When the nominations for this came out I had this unbelievable feeling of looking at the 12-year-old that had this burning in my guts for this type of validation, and I instantly realised that an award like this is much bigger than me", he said.

Steel producers in Canada, Brazil, Mexico, South Korea and Turkey rely far more heavily on the United States market. Zhang said the increase will be in step with economic growth and serve national security and development interests.
Get Out was nominated in four Oscar categories and beat The Big Sick, Lady Bird, The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri in the Best Original Screenplay category. Not only that, but several of those voters hadn't even seen the movie, according to an anonymous Academy member.
"I said that Jordan deserves it, Jordan deserves it", Kaluuya said, recalling the conversation. The film earned critical acclaim, and countless accolades including the BAFTA and Writers Guild Awards for Best Original Screenplay.
"A story familiar to most of us", Ivory said, accepting his award, "whether we're straight, or gay, or somewhere in between, we've all gone through first love, I hope - and come out the other side mostly intact". Pixar's Coco also won Best Song for "Remember Me". "I love all, thank you so much goodnight".

Additionally, bin Salman will visit the Cathedral of St.Mark in Abbasiya where he will meet with Pope Tawadros II. Also, Al-Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed el-Tayib will receive the Saudi crown prince at Al Azhar Mosque on Monday.
The personal reward for Peele is "all the handsome moments of meeting heroes", like fellow victor Gary Oldman - who took home the best actor award.
Peele was a surprise victor at the otherwise predictable award ceremony.

Roger Bannister, the first runner to break the 4-minute barrier in the mile, has died. It was as much of a psychological barrier as it was a physical barrier.
Do you think Peele deserved to win over the likes of Nanjiani, Gerwig and del Toro? At the end of the night, it ended up going to Mark Bridges, who won best costume design for his work in the film "Phantom Thread".
