Oscars 2018: The Shape of Water Wins Best Picture at Academy Awards

07 March, 2018, 07:25 | Author: Julio Duncan
  • Here's what the celebs will be drinking on Oscars night

However, last year's supporting winners Viola Davis ("Fences") and Mahershala Ali ("Moonlight") will present those awards.

One of the most memorable moments in Academy Awards history happened at last year's show when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced the wrong victor for the biggest award of the night, Best Picture.

Analysts say this year's turnout was also likely affected by a group of leading contenders that had limited box-office appeal, as top winners The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri have claimed just $57 million and $52 million domestically. Dunaway and Beatty had been handed the incorrect envelope. There's a chemistry there, there always has been.

Beatty said: "It's so nice seeing you again". "We're still doing it. I wasn't trying to be amusing", Beatty clarified on stage at the time, after host Jimmy Kimmel had joked "Warren, what did you do?"


Riffing on the #OscarsSoWhite controversy of recent years, Haddish said: "Are the Oscars too black now?" I...talked to them very nicely, the accountants.

Showing her sense of humor, the actress actually wore the same glamorous blue Esteban Cortazar dress to present Best Picture this year as she wore on the red carpet of last year's Oscars.

With that, he and Dunaway walked on stage, but this time as the credits rolled they knew that the winners had taken the limelight and not the presenters. "He couldn't get it open, I think".

Guaranteed to take to the stage of the Dolby Theater at least once are current nominees Greta Gerwig ("Lady Bird"), Kumail Nanjiani ("The Big Sick") and Margot Robbie ("I, Tonya").
