Below is the synopsis of "Get Out," per IMDB

It's time for a young African American to meet with his white girlfriend's parents for a weekend in their secluded estate in the woods, but before long, the friendly and polite ambience will give way to a nightmare.

While there are laughs in "Get Out," many critics argue the film's social commentary is no laughing matter. The film holds 99 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes; so many still agree "Get Out" deserves to win big. TIME's Stephanie Zacharek writes:

Peele succeeds where sometimes even more experienced filmmakers fail: He's made an agile entertainment whose social and cultural observations are woven so tightly into the fabric that you're laughing even as you're thinking, and vice-versa.

Below is the synopsis of "Lady Bird," per IMDB

In the early 2000s, an artistically-inclined seventeen year-old comes of age in Sacramento, California.

"Lady Bird" also holds a 99 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Many critics agree "Lady Bird" is a relatable coming-of-age dramedy. Chicago Reader's J.R. Jones writes:

Gerwig finds a warmer part of herself when, unencumbered by any lab partner, she returns to her hometown with Lady Bird. One can only hope that, this time, she stays.
