Oscars: Alexandre Desplat Wins Best Original Score for 'The Shape of Water'

Oscars: Alexandre Desplat Wins Best Original Score for 'The Shape of Water'

"Thirty years ago when the business just started up there, the people up there began to learn from the best in the world and now they are some of the best in the world", Dale told reporters backstage.

Christopher Nolan's war drama Dunkirk took both sound awards, Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing, and it was the only multiple victor in the early going.

The Shape of Water director, who reigned victorious at last week's Oscars, revealed he and Lorenza Newton went their separate ways in February 2017, and their divorce was confirmed in September that year.

The other big-hitters didn't go home empty-handed, however.

Jordan Peele made history as the first African-American to earn an Oscar for best original screenplay, winning for his script to "Get Out", a box-office smash he also directed.

France also featured in the Academy Awards list in another category, as the French producer (and global sales agent) Émilie Georges, through her production company La Cinéfacture, co-produced Call Me by Your Name, which was nominated in four categories and picked up the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. "Don't talk to us about it at the parties tonight".

For a ceremony so invested in the future of the industry, it did spend a whole lot of time romanticizing the past. Following the retro trend, montages of classic films and previous nominees played before each major category was announced.

Were the Oscars this year diverse enough?

Sadly, the nostalgia seemed to fight with rather than complement the larger celebration of diversity.

Gary Oldman picked up the Best Actor statuette for playing Winston Churchill in the biopic Darkest Hour, a period drama that also was recognized with the prize for Best Makeup and Hairstyling.

Rap artist Common and singer Andra Day brought the leaders of activist movements, including #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, onstage for a performance of their Oscar-nominated song Stand Up For Something. Though his name and face aren't recognized by most, the 57-year-old has 160 acting credits to his name.
