New Delhi:  The 90th Academy Awards ended with a bang with The Shape Of Water winning best Film and Best Director (for Guillermo del Toro) prizes apart from two others. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which was The Shape Of Water's major competitor won two awards - Best Actress for Frances McDormand and Best Supporting Actor for Sam Rockwell. Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk was the second top winner of the Golden night in California. For Gary Oldman (Darkest hour) and Allison Janney (I, Tonya) it was a clean sweep as they won Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress awards respectively after winning at Golden Globes and BAFTA earlier this year.

The Academy Awards, like the Grammys and Golden Globes before it, included the 'Me Too' and 'Time's Up' campaigns in speeches.
