The  90th annual Academy Awards were given out yesterday, March 4, 2018, at the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood. It was televised live on ABC and was hosted again this year by Jimmy Kimmel. He did a decent job, but his monologue was not memorable, and the stunt of the year was him gathering several celebrities to crash an advance showing of A Wrinkle in Time at the iconic Chinese 6 Theatres.

The Shape of Water did the best by securing statues for Best Picture, Director, Production Design, and Original Score (it was up for 13 awards). Even though there were some hoping for Get Out to take home Best Picture, it was always a long shot. That movie did get the nod for Original Screenplay, so it wasn't shut out (likely avoiding a backlash against the awards by ardent fans).

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway returned to hand out the Best Picture award, perhaps as a chance at redemption for the gaffe last year, when they accidentally announced that La La Land had won for Best Picture, but the acceptance speeches were interrupted by the news that the actual winner was Moonlight.

Sam Rockwell seemed genuinely surprised and pleased when he won for his supporting role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. It was especially nice to see Roger Deakins finally get an Oscar as Directory of Photography for Blade Runner 2049. He's been nominated 14 times (including this year) and it was good to see him get his due.

The highlight of the evening was probably Frances McDormand's acceptance speech for Best Actress in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, where she asked all the female nominees for all awards to stand and be recognized by any decision-makers watching, saying that they each have stories to tell, and it would be a good idea to ask about them. She sent search engines ablaze when she finished her speech with a plea for "inclusion riders" on all future contracts (they appear to require diversity in casting and crew in movie productions).

I want you to know that I predicted 20 of the 25. I stop filling out the Oscar ballot for Celebration Cinema, because if I'm among the winner, i had to go to Grand Rapids and I haven't been there in years. I fill out the Oscar ballot for Goodrich Quality Theaters. I expect to hear from them in a few days, or I won't. I'm looking forward in seeing "The Shape of Water," hopefully in a few weeks.
