Oscars 2018: Gary Oldman Wins Best Actor, Frances McDormand Wins Best Actress

A Still From The Movie Call Me By Your Name

After Kobe Bryant and Gary Oldman's win in Sunday's Oscars, the latter's wife slammed the Academy for handing awards to "not one but two abusers". "I've lived in America for the longest time and I am deeply grateful to her for the loves and the friendship that I have made, and the many wonderful gifts it is given me". In addition to earning recognition from any number of critics' groups, Oldman's performance in director Joe Wright's film earned him the Golden Globe, the Screen Actors Guild Award, the Critics' Choice Award and the BAFTA Award, among others. Peele and Gerwig are also nominated for original screenplay, while del Toro is nominated along with Vanessa Taylor for "The Shape of Water".

The highlight had to be his shout out to his 91-year-old mother.

No doubt I'll end up with more egg on my face than the time I went for a meringue facial. The film tells about the period of time when Churchill only became Prime Minister, faced with the most awful times in human history, including the UK.

Academy Award victor Gary Oldman gives a "towering performance" (Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair) in acclaimed director Joe Wright's soaring drama Darkest Hour. Daniel Kaluuya shines in "Get Out" as he transforms from cool and collected to manic and terrified for his life; his performance externalizes fear in ways that are as unclichéd as the film itself.

The Brit did surprisingly well, thanking his loved ones for all the support over the years.

Apparently, this wasn't the only occasion where she set down her Oscar over the course of the night.

After a year full of fraught conversations about whether a person can separate the art from the artist, Oldman's past behaviour rang alarm bells for some viewers who saw his award as undermining the Time's Up movement. Elio and Oliver's chemistry at the beginning is dynamic but not amicable, however, at the end it takes a handsome turn. He isn't the only Oscar victor this year with an allegedly violent past. Who's to say that the film won't beat the odds too?

It will be really interesting to see who wins the actor in a leading role statuette this year.

Gary Oldman will forever be known by a generation of moviegoers as Sirius Black from the "Harry Potter" series, but he'll finally enter the family of Oscar winners with is spot-on portrayal of Winston Churchill.

Taking aim at not only Oldman but also Oscar victor National Basketball Association star Kobe Bryant, who'd been accused of rape in 2003, Fiorentino told TMZ, "Congratulations, Gary and congratulations to the Academy for awarding not one but two abusers with Oscars". Backstage, he reacted to his win, telling ET, "My first time here and my first one".
