Los Angeles: Hollywood’s biggest night concluded and “The Shape of Water” emerged as the big winner with four honours at the 90th Academy Awards ceremony — including Best Picture — where celebration of cinema was laced with political jibes as well as powerful statements on debates like sexual harassment, immigration and gender balance that are plaguing Hollywood.

Gary Oldman won Best Actor award for his role as Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour” and actress Frances McDormand nabbed her second best actress Oscar for “Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri”, two decades after winning an award for “Fargo”.
