Miles Dale, who shared the best picture Oscar with director Guillermo del Toro, called the achievement "a watershed moment" for Toronto and the Canadian film industry at large. It was during a meeting about that project that the two began to develop the idea that became "The Shape of Water".

"The categories of best actor and actress were won by Gary Oldman ('Darkest Hour") and Frances McDormand for her role in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

"I stopped writing this movie about 20 times because I thought it was impossible".

Del Toro's victory made headlines across Mexico and Latin America.

Guillermo del Toro is slated to teach a number of master classes at the Guadalajara Film Festival, but not all of the tickets available online are legit, the Oscar-winning filmmaker warns. "The world is watching us; we need to set an example".

He left the annual awards show happy, taking home trophies for best director and best picture. "I started working with her at the end of the summer".

Nance was inserted in the lineup after Tristan Thompson sprained his ankle and is expected to be out a couple of games. The six-year-pro out of Texas is averaging 6 points and 6 1/2 rebounds for the Cavaliers in 42 games this season.

"Thank you to Denis Villeneuve, whose guts are seen in every frame of this film, especially the visual effects", said John Nelson, who won alongside Gerd Nefzer, Paul Lambert and Richard R. Hoover.

"I have two words to leave you with tonight - inclusion rider".

The Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film went to A Fantastic Woman, the story of a transgender woman's fight to be recognized as her late lover's partner.

Traditionally, the previous year's best actor victor would present that statuette, but Casey Affleck, who triumphed in 2017 for "Manchester by the Sea", withdrew under a cloud of sexual harassment accusations he denies.

Suffice to say that one just doesn't quite know what is going to happen next in this film that is wrought with such care, and laced with so much tension, supported by a cast of characters who are played by the best of the best when it comes to thespians. That was also an interesting year for Desplat because he was also nominated for The Imitation Game, and rather than cancel himself out as many Oscar pundits would guess, the composer actually won.
