International Online Film Critics' Poll

The International Online Film Critics' Poll (also known as International Online Film Critics[1][2] and IOFCP[3]) is a bi-annual polling of film critics from United States, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Poland, France, and Canada.[4] The award was created to recognize excellences in film every two years.[4][5][6]

The IOFCP was founded in 2007 by George McCoy.[4][5][7] The award was created to recognize excellence in film every two years because, in the opinion of the founders, a biennial award allows the comparison of different film seasons. Its membership includes film critics and journalists from Metroactive, Le Nouvel Observateur, Mymovies.it, Cinefilos.it, Las Vegas Weekly, Examiner.com, BBC, The Times, IndieWire, and other periodicals.

The 2010 poll included votes for Best Film of the Decade (Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King), Best Director of the Decade (Peter Jackson for Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King), Best Actor of the Decade (Philip Seymour Hoffman for Capote), Best Actress of the Decade (Charlize Theron for Monster), and Top Ten Films of the Decade.[7][8][9]
