Careful wrote, "I got the impression that she was half fish-man herself".

Aside from the main award, "The Shape of Water" won awards in three other nomination categories with Guillermo del Toro selected as best director.

It is therefore astonishing and ideal that The Shape of Water won The Best Picture Award from the Academy last Sunday, considering that the film is anything but a conventional classic that Hollywood usually swoons over, even while it employs the tropes of a traditional love story.

Congrats to "The Shape of Water" and to all the people who brought it to life.

Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell both took home expected wins for their roles in "Three Billboards", for Best Lead Actress and Supporting Actor, respectively, with McDormand delivering a rousing acceptance speech and calling on every woman nominated in the audience to stand. Del Toro and Kraus designed the story from the ground up as a two-tiered release, one story told by two artists in two independent mediums of film and literature.

The Shape of Water helmer had viewers in stitches as he verified the win after grabbing the envelope from Warren Beatty during Academy Awards.

"As a filmmaker you want many people to see what you do".

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

But towards the end of the show, Salma Hayek fronted the presentation of a video of stars advocating for women's rights and racial equality, including Ava DuVernay, Chadwick Boseman, Lee Daniels and Geena Davis.

"The Shape Of Water" features one of the most handsome movie conclusions of recent years.
