'Get Out' earns Best Picture award from Online Film Critics Society

UPI News Service, 12/30/2017 

Jordan Peele's "Get Out" was named Best Picture Thursday by the Online Film Critics Society.

Peele, who wrote and directed the social thriller, was also honored with the Original Screenplay award, Deadline reported.

Other winners included Gary Oldman winning Best Actor for "Darkest Hour," Sally Hawkins winning Best Actress for "The Shape of Water," Christopher Nolan winning Best Director for "Dunkirk," James Ivory winning the Adapted Screenplay award for "Call Me By Your Name," Sam Rockwell winning Best Supporting Actor for "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" and Laurie Metcalf winning Best Supporting Actress for "Lady Bird."

"Get Out's" OFCS win comes after the film was nominated for Best Musical or Comedy Film at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards.

Star Daniel Kaluuya was also nominated for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Film.

Peele previously discussed "Get Out" being nominated in the Best Musical or Comedy category at the Golden Globes noting that he considers his film to be a documentary due to its subject matter and social commentary on race.

"Here's the thing, the movie is truth. The thing that resonated with people was truth, so for me it's more of a historical biopic," Peele said while on The Late Show.

"Get Out," which was released in theaters in February, grossed $253.4 million worldwide.
