The 90th annual Oscars were held last Sunday, March 4, celebrating the great in film-making over the past year. While there were winners and losers of the night, all films nominated got themselves into the history books for just being there—here are the results of the night.
Supporting actor and actress went to Allison Janney and Sam Rockwell, respectively, for their roles in “I, Tonya” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Next up was the foreign and documentary films, with “A Fantastic Woman” winning Foreign Language, “Heaven is a Traffic Jam on the 405” winning the Short, and “Icarus” winning the Feature Documentary spots. Pixar’s “Cocoa” was a big winner in the night, winning both Animated Feature and Original Song, with the song “Remember Me.” The Animated Short went to “Dear Basketball”, and the Live Action Short went to “The Silent Child.”
Awards going to both Original and Adapted Screenplay showed the progressiveness in Hollywood, with gay-themed “Call Me by Your Name” winning best Adapted Screenplay, and Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” winning best Original, making him the first black writer to ever get the award. Leading Actor went to Gary Oldman for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour,” and Frances McDormand won Leading Actress for her character in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” with “Darkest Hour” also winning for Makeup and Hair-styling. As the larger awards were announced, “The Shape of Water” seemed to be the big winning of the night, winning Best Director, Best Picture, Production Design, and Original Score. “Dunkirk” was a close runner-up, winning Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, and Film Editing. The night closed with “Blade Runner 2049” winning Visual Effects, and “Phantom Thread” ironically winning Costume Design.
