Son of Saul won Best Foreign Language Film at the Golden Globe Awards. The film was considered the favorite to win the category in the months leading up to the ceremony and is the frontrunner for the Oscar as well. 

The Hungarian film was included on many critics’ year-end lists and for some time was considered a potential Best Picture Oscar nominee. It tells the story of a Jewish man working in Auschwitz who believes that he’s found the remains of his son and intends to give the boy a proper burial.

It was the first Golden Globe win for a film from Hungry, as pointed out by Helen Mirren while announcing the award.
