During Sunday night’s 90th Academy Awards ceremony, Jordan Peele made history by becoming the first African American to win an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for his hit film Get Out.

Now equipped with the coveted statue, Peele has found an appropriate, albeit temporary, home for it next to the Emmy he won back in 2006 for Key & Peele. Sharing a pic of the two awards facing each other, it’s not hard to notice a familiar chair placed in the background; the same chair protagonist Chris (played by Academy Award-nominated actor Daniel Kaluuya) finds himself hypnotized in. Take a look at Peele’s tweet below.

Marking Peele’s directorial debut, Get Out went on to break numerous records since its release, cementing itself as one of the boldest and most important studio films of our time. Get Out was nominated for four Oscars in total this year: Best Picture, Daniel Kaluuya for Best Actor and Peele for both Best Original Screenplay and Best Director. Peele was only the fifth black director to ever be nominated in the directing field. You can watch his speech below.
