And the Oscar goes to... The Shape of Water


And there you have it folks, the 2017 Oscar for Best Picture goes to "The Shape of Water". After a topsy-turvy season during which several films laid claim to the throne, it was Guillermo del Toro's fantasy romance film that took the top honor, along with 3 other well-deserved statues for Director, Production Design and Original Score. Overall, the show was predictably political, while the awards winners themselves were rather surprising (for me at least). Shockers included "Icarus" winning Best Documentary and "Remember Me" beating the tailor-made Oscar song "This is Me". But and the end of the day, I couldn't complain much as this year's nominees were a quality bunch. As the cliché goes, they were all winners. But of course, these following honorees felt that champion's feeling more than the others:
