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.
