The Oklahoma Film Critics Circle Goes All Out For GET OUT (AWARDS 2017)


The OFCC joined other critics groups to lift Get Out from The Sunken Place.

Announcing its winners via a Twitter rollout, The Oklahoma Film Critics Circle (disclaimer: I’m a member) began 2018 by revealing its choices for the Best In Film for 2017. Along with a Top 10 List – which saw Get Out eek past The Shape of Water in a tie-breaking vote – the membership gave awards in Acting, Writing, and other creative categories.

Get Out dominated the OFCC’s 12th Annual presentation, winning 5 awards out of the 10 categories it was eligible for: Best Film, Best Director (Jordan Peele), Best Ensemble, Best Original Screenplay, and Best First Feature (Jordan Peele).

The OFCC’s most provocative choice was for the year’s Most Disappointing Film: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. A major Oscar contender this Awards season, Three Billboards has proven to be a critical lightening rod, garnering divisive love/hate reactions. A substantial number of the OFCC membership landed squarely in the “hate” camp.

Here’s the complete rundown, tweet by tweet. (OFCC Vice President Craig Sanger designed the Winner slates.)
