Oscar 2018: Gone but not forgotten, Legends lives forever
Oscar 2018: Gone but not forgotten, Legends lives forever


The 90th Oscars Awards, kicked off at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Monday. Probably the strongest set of nominees in this category we’ve seen for a long time. Del Toro is a deserving winner for his gorgeous and grisly romance. “I am an immigrant,” he says, kicking off an emotive and eloquent speech. He’s arguing for a lack of division in the US and thanking those around him for his success.

Guillermo del Toro’s romance fantasy The Shape of Water led nominations with 13 nods, followed by eight nominations for Christopher Nolan’s epic World War II film, Dunkirk, and seven for the next favourite, Martin McDonagh’s piercing black comedy, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

To present The Best Original Screenplay award, Nicole Kidman took to the stage. In a surprise upset, Get Out’s Jordan Peele won. Peele got the first standing ovation of the evening. “This means so much to me,” Peele said. “I thought no one would ever make this movie, so I want to dedicate this to everyone who raised my voice and let me make this movie.“To the cast and crew, I love you,” he said, “and to my mother, who taught me to love, in the face of hate.”

Now for the In Memoriam segment and Eddie Vedder is on stage singing Tom Petty’s Room at the Top of the World. Harry Dean Stanton, Jonathan Demme, Martin Landau, Roger Moore, Sam Shepard, Jeanne Moreau and Jerry Lewis are just some of the names mentioned.
