Hey, You Guys Worked On An Oscar Winner!!!

posted by Mary Booth -

So this just happened.  

A movie filmed in Fairhope and Mobile won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.

And this morning, on Facebook, I started seeing locals talking about working on an Oscar winner.

Own that.  It's an incredible honor for everyone from extras to camera crew.

Congratulations to @JordanPeele on his Academy Award win for Best Original Screenplay. #GetOut

The movie ended up in Alabama after missing out on a California tax rebate.  

Jordan Peele tells New York Magazine what he thought he'd find here-- 

I went to Alabama with my own stereotypes and preconceived notions about getting chased out. There’s definitely a feeling that you’re in Trump country. But I have to say, the stereotypes were proved wrong. People were very sweet, very open, and there’s a lot of film lovers there who are very intelligent. ­Ultimately, I loved Alabama.

Allison Williams, who rented a house in Baldwin County during the filming, showed her love of Alabama (and Fairhope in particular) on Instagram-- 

Okay, Alabama. I see what you're doing. I'm gonna get attached if you keep this up. #BamaGram #NoFilter #RollTide #WarDamnEagle

Just left my temporary home of Fairhope, AL, which I fell totally in love with. I'm really going to miss it, and I will come back someday. If you come here and don't get doughnuts at @warehousebakeryanddonuts, we probably wouldn't get along. ❤️🍩❤️ #Fairhope
