Because the organization is composed of members from across the globe, the group also recognizes films that have not yet been released in the United States. The honorees in that category this year were Aferim!, Cemetery of Splendor, The Club, Dheepan, The Lobster, Mountains May Depart, Mia Madre, Rams, Right Now, Wrong Then, and The Sunset Song.
The OFCS has nominated the eventual Oscar winner for Best Picture in eight of the last ten years; matching Oscar winners 12 Years a Slave (2013), The Hurt Locker (2009), No Country for Old Men (2007) and Argo (2012), becoming the first major critics group to recognize Ben Affleck’s future Academy Award recipient.
“Our organization is excited to recognize so many unique and interesting films,” the OFCS Governing Committee members John Hanlon, Wesley Lovell and Cole Smithey said about the eclectic mix of winners.
