'The Shape of Water' wins best picture Oscar

90th Oscars Speech: THE SHAPE OF WATER; Guillermo del Toro and J. Miles Dale (BEST PICTURE)

Who will win: There's no doubt about it, this year is tough to predict. Hers came for playing a revenge-seeking mother in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", Irish playwright Martin McDonagh's lacerating and controversial fable about a small town racked by grief and anger, which also won a supporting actor prize for Sam Rockwell as a racist police officer. That includes the top directing awards at the Golden Globes, the Critics' Choice Awards and - perhaps most notably - the Director's Guild of Americas Awards.

The Romeo to Sally Hawkins's silent Juliet, the creature in question is played by character actor Doug Jones, a favorite of director Guillermo del Toro.

"Part of it is here, part of it is Europe, part of it is everywhere, because I think the greatest thing that our industry does is erase the line in the sand", the filmmaker said.

"The movie is about connecting with 'the other, '" del Toro told NPR in December, speaking about The Shape of Water. It received a leading 13 nominations for this year's Oscars, and won four Oscars on Sunday night.

But tonight the Academy showed that they indeed truly adore Desplat, and gave him his second original score win for Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water.

The best documentary feature award went to "Icarus", a Netflix film about institutionalized doping in Russian athletics and at the Olympics.

The futuristic sci-fi drama Blade Runner 2049 wins in the category of Best VFX.

The trio also won in the same category at the recent British Academy Film Awards.

Allison Janney bagged her first Oscar with I, Tonya in the category of Best Supporting Actress. Along with the acting, much of the praise for "Missouri" went to its writing and it wouldn't be a shock to see that get recognition. Gary Oldman, winning best actor for Darkest Hour, quipped, "I'm not going to get the ski" amid his rambling speech.

That film yielded the oldest Oscar victor ever: James Ivory, who at 89 picked up a screenplay award for adapting it from the 2007 novel of the same name. Additionally, it doesn't have enormous competition at the moment.

Dear Basketball wins the best animated short film.

30 million - The approximate number of dollars the ceremony costs - that includes the host Jimmy Kimmel's fee, which for past year he revealed was $15,000 - not much comparatively for such a high profile gig.
