Fantastical Romance "The Shape Of Water" Wins Best Picture

Fantastical romance "The Shape of Water" won best picture, the film industry's most prestigious honor at Oscar ceremony.

The movie's Mexican filmmaker, Guillermo Del Toro, took home the best director Oscar, dashing the hopes of a rare win by a woman or a black filmmaker.

As expected, Britain's Gary Oldman was named best actor for playing world war two leader Winston Churchill in "Darkest Hour," while Frances Mcdormand's Woman in a Fury was a popular best actress winner for dark comedy "Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri."

Sam Rockwell, and Allison Janney took home their first Oscars for their supporting roles "three billboards" and independent ice-skating movie "I, Tonya," respectively.
