Guillermo del Toro has won the best director Academy Award for his film "The Shape of Water".

"The Shape of Water" went into Sunday night's 90th annual Academy Awards - hosted by Jimmy Kimmel at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood - with a leading 13 nominations. "And, so, to all the Dreamers out there, we stand with you", Nanjiani said.

Dear Basketball wins the best animated short film.

Comcast Corp's Universal Pictures won four awards, including best actor for Gary Oldman's portrayal of Winston Churchill in "Darkest Hour", and best original screenplay for Jordan Peele for "Get Out".

"We don't make movies like "Call Me by Your Name" for money", said Kimmel, referring to the same-sex coming-of-age romance between a teen and a young man in 1980s Italy.

During the ceremony, Sally is up for Best Actress while Octavia is up for Best Supporting Actress.

Rita Morena announces award for Best Foreign Language film (A Fanstatic Woman). Fogel dedicated the award to Rodchenkov, "our fearless whistleblower who now lives in grave danger".

"And the truth is, if we are successful here, if we can work together to stop sexual harassment in the workplace, if we can do that, women will only have to deal with harassment all the time at every other place they go". Seacrest has denied it and E! has supported him.

48 - The number of statues handed out past year. Movie attendance also hit a 24-year low in 2017. Although the lame bit fell flat, it turned out to be one of the most amusing gags throughout the night, as honorees worked it into their thank-you speeches.
