The Academy Awards ceremony happening tonight at Hollywood is now over and the Winners Are… “The Shape of Water” won the “Best Movie” award and its director Guillermo Del Toro also won the “Best Director” Award. Gary Oldman won the “Best Actor” Award for playing Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hours” in which he is truly incredible. Frances McDormand won the “Best Actress” Award for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”. Dunkirk and The Shape of Water also won several technical awards and Disney Pixar two for Best Song and Best Animated Film ( see post below ). You have the full list of winners on the Oscars website HERE.
If you wonder how the heavy Oscars statues are made and the two videos below, including a tour inside the Chicago company which is making them, will tell you all about this.
Once the Oscars statues are made they’ll go to a winner in each category and the next video will tell you how the oscars voting works.
I have a “one more thing” for you which are these nine great illustrations – one for each movie nominee in the “Best Picture” category, and these were done by artist Olly Gibbs.
