Fantasy-drama ‘The Shape of Water’ emerged as the biggest winner of the night at the 90th Annual Academy Awards.
The movie won a total of four Academy Awards out of 13 nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director for Guillermo del Toro. It also won awards for both original score and production design.
The star-studded ceremony was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel on Sunday, March 4 in Los Angeles.

Frances McDormand went home with the Best Actress trophy for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,”
Allison Janney won her first Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her work as the cantankerous LaVona Golden in “I, Tonya.”
Rockwell won the Best Supporting Actor statue for his portrayal of the bumbling Officer Dixon in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”
Jordan Peele made history by being the first African American recipient of the Academy Award for the best original screenplay for Get Out and Blade Runner: 2049 proved yet again how sci-fi can hold its own at the Awards.
Frances McDormand won for her lead role as a mother seeking justice for her murdered daughter in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” while Gary Oldman was voted best actor for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour.”
Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic “Dunkirk” bagged three awards, all for its technical craft: editing, sound editing and sound design.
“Coco” won a pair of Academy Awards including best animated film and the tear-jerker “Remember Me” song.
While accepting her award, Darla K. Anderson, the film’s producer, said, “‘Coco’ is proof that art can change and connect the world and this can only be done when we have a place for everyone and anyone who feels like an ‘other’ to be heard.”
