Oscars 2018: ‘Call Me By Your Name’ wins for screenplay; ‘A Fantastic Woman’ takes Foreign Language Film

Oscars night is a wrap. For me, this year marked the first time not doing coverage from the ceremony, a newsroom or from home since 2000. It was nice to watch as a civilian again! Was sad Timothée Chalamet did not win best actor since I saw Call Me By Your Name again yesterday and was even more smitten and moved by his performance. But the gay-themed romantic drama did win in the adapted screenplay for James Ivory. Also, A Fantastic Woman, a stirring story of love and loss that centers on a transgender woman, won the Oscar for best foreign language film. The favorites all won in the acting categories: Frances McDormand (actress); Gary Oldman (actor); Allison Janney (supporting actress); Sam Rockwell (supporting actor). The Shape of Water won Best Picture and best director for Guillermo del Toro. Here is a LINK to the official Oscars website for a full list of winners and videos of the acceptance speeches.

    What was I smoking yesterday? What I meant was that I was thrilled that Guillermo del Toro won Best Director and “The Shape of Water” won Best Picture.

    Also glad to see “Coco” get recognition by winning “Best Animated Feature” and “Best Song”.
