Oklahoma Film Critics Circle announces 2020 award winners

Paul Raci in Darius Marder's Sound of Metal

Minari has been named the best film of 2020 by the Oklahoma Film Critics Circle. Voters chose it over a raft of other popular titles in their Top 10, with Nomadland, Promising Young Woman and Sound of Metal all winning top prizes. Overall, this is far from a banner bunch from the OFCC, though looking back over past awards slate from these critics, I can't say I'm surprised. A distinct lack of innovative and/or experimental fare, far from in keeping with the progress of the current awards season, and some dispiriting Best Picture runners-up bearing in mind the total absence of female-directed titles such as First Cow and Never Rarely Sometimes Always.
