'The Shape of Water' triumphs at nail-biting Oscars

Guillermo del Toro Reveals He and Wife Lorenza Newton Quietly Divorced In 2017

How does one begin to describe Guillermo del Toro's wondrous, magical new film The Shape of Water?

But, thanks to the Oscars - where the film won top awards Sunday, including Best Picture - we now know that even more people found out about the toys, people who matter the most to its makers: customers.

Alexandre Desplat triumphed at last night's prestigious Oscars ceremony, with his much-acclaimed The Shape Of Water soundtrack winning the Oscar for Best Original Music Score.

Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell took home the Oscars for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor for their performances in the dark comedy Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri.

Guillermo del Toro's entire, dazzling career has been built around a fantastical world of outlandish creatures - an elaborate universe he says he built by the age of 11. "I thought this could never happen - it happens". "She is working with me, we have a nice friendship", he shares, before making it clear she did not play a part in his marital breakdown.

"I want to tell you, everyone that is dreaming of a parable of using genre of fantasy to tell stories about the things that are real in the world today, you can do it". I want you to be my mama one day.

The biggest victor of the night was "The Shape of Water", a fantasy drama about a mute woman, who falls in love with an amphibious sea monster.

Jordan Peele became the first African-American to win Best Original Screenplay for "Get Out", which he also directed.

Tonight the Oscars decided that the best picture of the year should go to "The Shape of Water!".

Gay romance Call Me By Your Name won Best Adapted Screenpla; A Fantastic Woman, Chile's groundbreaking story about a transgender woman, won Best Foreign Language Film; and Mexican-inspired Coco was named Best Animated Feature.

She was delighted to be back on stage however, giving the prizes for Best Costume Design to Phantom Thread, Paul Thomas Anderson's fashion-world psychodrama.

A former Saultite capped off his weekend by taking home an Oscar statuette from last night's Academy Awards ceremony.
