Lead winners of the 90th Oscar Awards

Of course one of the year's most buzzed-about and downright unusual films deserves to have all those mementos on its awards shelf, right next to its shiny new Oscar statuettes.

Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel tackled Hollywood's sexual misconduct scandal with pointed jokes on a night that became a platform for activists on issues ranging from gun violence and the Black Lives Matter movement to sexism and immigration.

"What happened with Harvey, what's happening all over, is long overdue", Kimmel said, to loud applause.

'We can't let bad behaviour slide anymore. "That is the kind of man we need more of", he said. "And I thank you very much'".

"He keeps his hands where you can see them, he never says a rude word and most importantly he has no penis at all".

Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, the genre-defying film is a love story between a mute janitor at a top-secret USA government research facility and a unusual amphibious creature being held captive there.

"The categories of best actor and actress were won by Gary Oldman ('Darkest Hour") and Frances McDormand for her role in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

Careful wrote, "I got the impression that she was half fish-man herself". Later in the show, Moreno earned a standing ovation when she struck a famous pose from the movie and strutted to the podium to present best foreign language film to Chile's A Fantastic Woman.

Rockwell thanked all the usual family and industry suspects as well as "everyone who's ever looked at a billboard". "I started working with her at the end of the summer".

It was the first Oscar nomination for the trio, who also won in the same category at the recent British Academy Film Awards. He won the night's top prize, Best Picture, along with Best Original Score and Best Director.

Following 2017's Best Picture mix-up and a year of public revelations about sexual assault in Hollywood, Sunday's Oscars ceremony was under enormous pressure. Close to 60 per cent of presenters were female and 51 per cent were people of colour.

Pixar's "Coco", the story about 12-year-old boy named Miguel who sets off a chain of events relating to a century-old mystery, nabbed Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song.

Traditionally, the previous year's best actor victor would present that statuette, but Casey Affleck, who triumphed in 2017 for "Manchester by the Sea", withdrew under a cloud of sexual harassment accusations he denies.

The movie, which was produced for reportedly as little as $15 million, and at the time of writing has made over $125 million at the global box office, could certainly measure its success in those terms, but it is becoming more and more clear that the primary way to judge if a movie is a cultural hit is. well. how do we put this? This one is a special years.

While none of the acting Oscars were awarded to people of color, diversity remained a theme at Sunday's 90th annual ceremony.
