Oscar 2018: Sridevi and Shashi Kapoor honored at Dolby Theatre


The 90th Academy Awards, or the Oscars, are being held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Monday, where Sridevi and Sashi Kapoor were honoured. Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water, Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri are the hot favourites.

After the Academy wisely decided not to have Casey Affleck up on stage, we instead have Jodie Foster and Jennifer Lawrence presenting the penultimate award of the night. As with the other acting awards of the night, this one was a given. McDormand has managed a string of speeches about how much she seems to despise winning awards this season but this one was slightly different. 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.”
