Python: Get the Key Whose Value Is Maximal in a Dictionary

>>> model_scores = {'model_a': 100, 'model_z': 198, 'model_t': 150}
>>> # workaround
>>> keys, values = list(model_scores.keys()), list(model_scores.values())
>>> keys[values.index(max(values))]
'model_z'
>>> # one-line
>>> max(model_scores, key=model_scores.get)
'model_z'
