Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” has been named Best Picture by the Online Film Critics Society, which unveiled its annual awards today.

The social horror pic, which has been scoring high marks among critics groups all awards season, also took the honor for Peele’s original screenplay.

A trio of Brits took other key wins: Christopher Nolan was named Best Director for “Dunkirk,” Gary Oldman is Best Actor for “Darkest Hour,” and Sally Hawkins won Best Actress for “The Shape of Water.”

“Dunkirk,” “Call My By Your Name” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” joined “Get Out” with multiple wins from the OFCS, which last year picked eventual Oscar Best Picture winner Moonlight for its top honor.

One thought on “‘Get Out’ Earns Best Picture & Screenplay By Online Film Critics Society

  1. well that’s good to hear I saw it and I thought it was a real creepy movie without all the excessive blood and gore. But I hope every black home especially if you have young ladies in your home rents the movie, “Hidden Figures.”
