Jordan was awarded the Oscar for Get Out, one of the most talked about films in the last year.

When @WhoopiGoldberg won her Oscar for “Ghost” she practically reached through my TV screen and told young me to follow my dreams. I did, and it worked. Thanks Whoopi.

And fans immediately showered him with congratulatory words and GIFs:

But one of the best reactions to Jordan's big win came from his longtime comedy partner and BFFAEAE (Best Friends Forever And Ever And Ever), Keegan-Michael Key.

Even Keegan-Michael's fiancée, Elisa Pugliese, couldn't hold back from expressing her excitement:

Love you @JordanPeele !!!!! Could not be more proud! #oscars2018 @KeeganMKey #GetOut #VanityFair

He seriously looks like a proud dad who just sent his first-born son off to college. Somebody grab the tissues, because I can't hold it together.

You can't make support like this up.
