Guillermo Del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” took home the top prize at the 90th Academy Awards in what was considered one of the most wide open best picture races in years. The fantasy creature romance also won the Oscars for directing, original score and production design.
A number of the night’s winners were first-time nominees including Jordan Peele, who won the Oscar for original screenplay for his horror satire “Get Out.” Allison Janney, who won for supporting actress, and Sam Rockwell, who won for supporting actor, were also first-time nominees.
Frances McDormand gave one of the most rousing speeches of the night when accepting the lead actress Oscar for her performance in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” while Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph left viewers wanting the pair to host an awards show of their own.
