An object complement is a noun, pronoun, or adjective which follows a direct object and renames it or tells what the direct object has become. It is most often used with verbs of creating or nominating such as make, name, elect, paint, call, etc.

Example: The people considered the place holy.

The word 'place' is the object and 'holy' is the object complement.

Can the objective complement of a sentence be found in a prepositional phrase?

The primary objective complement of a sentence can not be found in a prepositional phrase, but a prepositional phrase can be included in a phrase that is part of the total objective complement. For example, "John was totally lacking in judgement". The principal part of the objective complement is "lacking", but the complete objective complement is "totally lacking in judgement", which includes the prepositional phrase "in judgement".
