Oscar 2018 nominees and winners ▷ NAIJA.NG


This year Academy Awards held a really bright and exciting event, the results and highlights are discussed in below. We invite you to checkout the full list of Oscar 2018 nominees and winners.

Winners: without any surprises

The announcement of the winners among the films nominated for Oscars this year passed without surprises. As expected, “The Shape of Water” is the best movie of the year, Gary Oldman was named the actor in a leading role for the main role in the film “Darkest Hour,” and Frances McDormand won best actress in a leading role for the movie “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

The best cartoon of the past season is “Coco”, also noted for the song performed in the film.

The best foreign language film of the year is the “A Fantastic Woman.”

The results are quite predictable. It’s worth noting the special success of the science fiction genre in the form of drama “The Shape of Water”, whose success in the number of Oscars won has surpassed even such cult films as “Blade Runner”, “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” and “Clockwork Orange.”

As for the expected triumph of Gary Oldman for the perfect portrait of Winston Churchill, the victory without a doubt is fully deserved by the master of the movie screen and a native of South London.

Large bold font

The organizers of the Oscars 2017 were embarrassed by the failure which happened during the announcement for best picture last year, when after the team that worked on the “La La Land” had already climbed onto the stage to receive the award announced by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, it was discovered that they got the wrong envelope and Oscar for best picture was actually won by “Moonlight” and the “La La Land” team had to leavethe stage disappointed.

This time the organizers of the ceremony did not risk. Envelopes with the names of the winners were clearly marked with a large gilded font: even the most shortsighted participant in the awarding process could not be mistaken when reading the correct names. The well-known audit firm PwC, which responds for envelopes distributing during the Oscar ceremony, even organized a special detailed training for everyone in whose hands envelopes with the names of winners may appear.

Sexual harassment at gunpoint

In past ceremonies, Harvey Weinstein became the main Oscars character. Here in Los Angeles, the infamous Hollywood producer each time got the opportunity to emphasize once again his status as an alpha male. And therefore it was not a coincidence that the host of the ceremony Jimmy Kimmel began to bypass this hot topic.

He even specifically noted Weinstein’s “merits” in the fight against sexual harassment in the movie industry and stressed that he was quite rightly expelled from the American Film Academy. Known for his piquant sense of humor, Kimmel also noted that the Oscar statuette fully embodies the present times: the golden symbol lacks a penis.

Following the leading topic, other speakers in the theater of Dolby, where Oscars are traditionally awarded, also expressed their points of view. The most unexpected statement came from Frances McDormand when she received her award for the best actress in a leading role.

At first, she urged all the men in the audience to take an interest in the plans for the future and the ideas of their companions instead of perceiving them as an accessory for the after-party ceremony. McDormand finished the speech recalling the condition of “inclusion rider” that Hollywood actors can optionally use in their work contract.
