The 20th Online Film Critics Society (OFCS) awards have given their Best Picture to Moonlight with its director, Barry Jenkins, picking up the directing award as well as both supporting prizes – for Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris.

The Online Film Critics Society’s Governing Committee said, “We’d like to congratulate all involved with Moonlight for the power and humanity of this extraordinary film. Topical and relevant, it is a timely reminder of that which unites us being greater than that which divides us.”

The group spread the wealth a bit with two wins for La La Land (Editing and Cinematography) and the screenplay awards going to Hell or High Water (Original) and Arrival (Adapted). Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea) and Natalie Portman (Jackie) continued their critics’ awards runs with win in the lead categories.

Three Special Awards were voted for by the OFCS membership, all of them Memorials reflecting the number of cherished entertainers lost in 2016. These Memorial Awards were named for Carrie Fisher, Alan Rickman & Gene Wilder.

Alongside the films in competition, 10 films not released in the US were selected by the membership for special note. These include Hirokazu Kore-eda’s After the Storm, The Dardennes Brothers’ The Unknown Girl, Bertrand Bonello’s Nocturama, Hong Sang-soo’s Yourself and Yours and Colm McCarthy’s The Girl with All the Gifts.
