The film’s Oscar tally included two biggies – Best Picture and Best Director. Frances McDormand won her second-Best Actress Oscar for her performance as a tenacious mother fighting to have her daughter’s rapist and murderer found in Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri.

She delivered a rousing, crowd-pleasing speech – “Look around, ladies and gentlemen. We all have stories to tell and projects we need to be financed. Invite us into your office in a couple days – or you can come to ours, whichever suits you best – and we’ll tell you all about them.” In the audience, the women – Meryl Streep included, were on their feet.

Oscars 2018: The big winners of the 90th Academy Awards

Gary Old man won his first Best Actor Oscar, as expected, for his work as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour. Also expected was Allison Janney’s Best Supporting Actress won for playing figure skater Tonya Harding’s terrible mother in I, Tonya.

The Best Supporting Actor Oscar was seen to be something of a three-horse race between Frances’ Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri co-star Sam Rockwell, The Florida Project’s Willem Dafoe and All The Money In The World’s Christopher Plummer. Sam Rockwell repeated his Golden Globe win, in a category that also included Woody Harrelson from the same film.

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk won three Oscars for excellence in sound and film editing. Darkest Hour’s makeup team also won an Oscar for their work transforming Gary Old man into Winston Churchill – it reportedly took four hours each day.

The other big films scored a win each – Call Me By Your Name, Phantom Thread and Get Out, which won its African-American director and writer Jordan Peele a historic Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.

Jimmy Kimmel returned as the host for the second year in a row – the first host since Billy Crystal to do so. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were asked back to present the Best Picture Oscar again despite last year’s envelope mix-up – this time, it went okay.
