SPOILER ALERT: This article is aimed at readers who have already seen “The Shape of Water”. This year’s Academy Awards Best Picture was no different – though they at least got the name of the movie right, unlike in 2017. “The Shape of Water”, a fantasy romance by Guillermo del Toro, is 2018’s Best Picture.
From Jordan Peele winning Best Adapted Screenplay to Roger Deakins finally getting a statue after 13 nominations, there were some historic moments at this year's ceremony.
The Oscars is undoubtedly the most star-studded event in the awards season calendar. This year stars including Saoirse Ronan, Daniel Kaluuya and Margot Robbie will grace the red carpet in their finest gowns and sharpest tuxedos before taking their seats to find out if they’ve won the coveted gong. All eyes will be on the dresses and suits, with the fashion pack ready in waiting to give their opinions about who nailed it in the clothing stakes. One thing’s for sure – the red carpet is going to look very different to the way it did 20 years ago. Back in 1998 we had Brad Pitt in red tinted spectacles, Drew Barrymore covered in body glitter and Demi Moore sporting a curly bob hairdo. And every second actress was wearing something beaded and had a miniature stole draped over the crook of her elbows. How things have changed.

Over the years there have been several cast and crew members who have been Oscar-nominated frequently but have never won an actual Academy Award.
Sony Pictures is preparing a major push to nab an unlikely Oscar nomination for R-Rated animation ‘Sausage Party’ at next year’s awards ceremony. Not only is the studio pushing for a Best Animated Feature nod, it thinks the film has a chance in the Best Original Song category as well. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman said: “Academy members are way smarter and more forward-thinking than people realise.
By Will Thorne, Variety Anne Hathaway says she wasn’t happy to win the best supporting actress Oscar in 2013 for her performance in Les Misérables. In an interview with the Guardian, Hathaway says she “lost her mind doing that movie,” for which she lost 25 pounds, and felt “very uncomfortable” getting up on stage to accept the Academy Award.

Earlier this year Disney and Marvel released ‘Captain America: Civil War’ to rapturous acclaim and made a killing at the box office. No Marvel film has ever actually won an Oscar but have, over the years, had a number of nominations in various categories. Last week they held a ‘For Your Consideration’ screening of the movie in the hope of gaining that all-important recognition to get their awards season rolling, and in truth there’s no reason why ‘Civil War’, directed by the Russo Brothers, can’t nab a hefty amount of awards between now and early 2017.
Is there any chance that the R-rated raunchfest Sausage Party could be one of them? “I know we won’t get nominated for an Oscar, but if we ever had a shot, this movie would be it,” Rogen said. Sausage Party does face some stiff competition.
The 69-year-old ‘Creed’ star, Sylvester Stallone, had been nominated for Best Supporting Actor in the recent ‘Rocky’ sequel. Appearing on Twitter, Stallone’s younger brother made his thoughts painfully clear. “The Academy should be ashamed of themselves,” said actor-musician Frank Stallone in a cutting series of tweets.
The Oscars’ reputation as the least risky red carpet may make them slightly less fun to sport-watch than, say, the OTT looks at the VMAs. But the relatively sedate approach to red carpet dressing makes the Academy Awards the best source of style inspiration. After all, most of us not named Miley Cyrus wouldn’t be caught dead in a shirt made of silver suspenders — but for prom or a big night out, plenty of women would want to channel Margot Robbie’s gold goddess dress or Charlize Theron’s show-stopping Dior gown. We found affordable versions of some of our favorite Oscars looks from last night.
The Oscars are more than just red carpet gowns and the host’s awkward jokes. It’s also a time when Hollywood’s finest tend to get super emotional — often when winning an award onstage, and sometimes while they’re just sitting in the audience, feeling moved. From Chris Pine’s infamous single tear at the 2015 Academy Awards to Halle Berry’s 2001 open-mouthed meltdown, these are the Oscars’ most memorable tearful moments — GIF’d.

Really, at this point, 26-year-old actress Brie Larson — predicted by many outlets to win the Academy Award this year — doesn’t need another article about how she’s an “it-girl” (she refutes the term, anyway).
Here’s a fun fact: During the first three years of the Academy Awards, actors could be nominated for their performances across multiple films. That’s why the first-ever Best Actor winner to show up in our supercut, German actor Emil Jannings, has two credits under his name for the Oscar he received in 1929. It was an interesting but confusing system, and by 1931 the Academy voting rules specified that actors should be nominated for just one film a year — as it remains today. ...
Hard to believe, but the dancing penguins in Mary Poppins were once considered cutting-edge special effects. In 1964, the Disney classic became the second-ever film to win the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, most recently awarded to Interstellar. In our latest Oscars supercut, Yahoo Movies takes a look at all the past winners of the Best Visual Effects Award, including such landmarks as Star Wars, Jurassic Park, The Matrix, and Avatar.
