Winners // 90th ACADEMY AWARDS



The 2017 awards season held its grand finale, celebrating The Shape of Water as the year's best film. In an awards season that's been equal parts predictable and edge-of-your-seat, many of the expected names and films were called to the podium at the Dolby Theatre, like Frances McDormand, Gary Oldman, Allison Janney, and Kobe Bryant.


Maybe Bryant is a little bit of a pop culture surprise, but awards season followers knew to probably expect the basketball legend to make his way to the stage with fellow winner, animator Glen Keane, for the short film Dear Basketball. Other expected wins included Darkest Hour for makeup and hairstyling, Call Me By Your Name for adapted screenplay, and Guillermo del Toro for directing.


History was made during the ceremony, the Academy's 90th iteration of the awards, with James  Ivory becoming the oldest ever winner in a competitive category for his aforementioned Call Me By Your Name screenplay and Roger Deakins' winning for cinematography, his first win after 14 nominations throughout his career.


Robert Lopez, who won Best Original Song with his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, for the song "Remember Me" from Coco, became the first person to ever double EGOT (win a competitive trophy from all four major arts groups: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony).

The ceremony itself, hosted for a second time by Jimmy Kimmel, was mostly tame. The few mentions of current, relevant movements like #MeToo and Time's Up were respectful. And, Harvey Weinstein was only the butt of a few jokes. Overall, Kimmel and the rest of Hollywood seemed ready to celebrate and move on to a new year of film and awards. This was a trying season and, as McDormand noted at Saturday's Spirit Awards, a long season.


The Shape of Water went into the evening with the most nominations. Like La La Land last year, ended up with the most wins: Picture, Director, Original Score, and Production Design. Dunkirk followed with three: Film Editing, Sound Mixing, and Sound Editing.

The 90th Academy Awards were held Sunday, March 4, 2018, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
