The 90th Academy Awards concluded with “The shape of water” as the best picture award. The movie is directed by Guillermo del Toro and gives tough competition for movies like ‘Lady Bird’ and ‘Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri’.
Along with the best movie, ‘The Shape of water’ is awarded with the Best original score, Director and best original design.
The 53-year-old helmer said, “I want to dedicate this, to every young filmmaker, the youth that is showing us how things are done. Really, they are. In every country in the world”.
Awarded with the second Oscar, Frances McDormand asked all the females present there to stand up in the theatre. She was praised for the movie, ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’.
Proudly McDormand said, “look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects that need financing. I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen, inclusion Rider”.
The next movie that rocked the show is Christopher Nolan’s World War II ‘Dunkirk’ which begged three awards including sound design, sound editing and editing.
Sam Rockwell won the best supporting actor for the movie “Three Billboards” and Allison Janney as the best supporting actress for I, Tonya.
For the best adapted screenplay category, James Ivory, 89 won the award and becomes the oldest winner of an Oscar.
Jimmy Kimmel, the host of the evening show started with a mocking way by representing the Oscar statue as, “He keeps his hands where you can see them, never says a rude word, and literally doesn’t have a penis”.
Remembering last year’s wrong announcement of La La Land instead of Moonlight Kimmel said, “This year, when you hear your name called, don’t get up right away”.
