Jordan Peele's Get Out has scored an early awards season success by taking the prize for Best Picture from the Online Film Critics Society (OFCS). The writer/director also won Best Original Screenplay in the awards, which were announced today. "“We’d like to pass on a huge congratulations to Jordan Peele and his entire team for the incredible debut feature," said a spokesperson for the society's governing committee. "Changing the gaze of ‘outsider horror’ was a masterstroke that blended genre and social issues into a potent cocktail. The effects of Get Out stay with you long after viewing."

Also prominent among the winners was Dunkirk, which saw Christopher Nolan take Best Director and Lee Smith take Best Editing, while James Ivory won Best Adapted Screenplay for Call Me By Your Name, which also saw Timothée Chalamet named Breakout Star of the year.
