Scenic artist Dena D'Angelo inspects the backdrop for the arrivals area before the rollout of the red carpet for Sunday's 90th Academy Awards in front of the Dolby Theatre on Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018, in Los Angel. The fantasy film "The Shape of Water" will win Best Director (Guillermo Del Toro), production design and original score while the WWII epic "Dunkirk" will be cited for film editing and in both sound categories.
What do you think of the show and winners so far?
Until a few years ago, the Academy asked for $10 per statue if a previous victor or their heirs wished to let go of an Oscar.
To make things a little bit easier for anyone hoping to stay up and watch the ceremony, Sky have set up a dedicated channel called Sky Cinema Oscars and will be broadcasting the ceremony live. Even if the film doesn't win Best Picture, Oldman should be recognized for the stellar work he put in to making this movie a consideration for the award. The film is available on Netflix. "I just realised I'm older than the Academy", she said, "but let's move on". Pixar's "Coco" won for Best Animated Feature. The star already has three Oscars under his belt.
But in an apparent nod to some more conservative TV viewers, the ceremony also honored men and women of the US military with a medley of Hollywood war film highlights introduced by Native American actor Wes Studi, a Vietnam War veteran who has appeared in several Oscar-nominated films. It was Tsuji's first win in three nominations.
The night's acting honors are considered fairly locked for nominees, and the first award of the evening - as expected - went to Rockwell for his supporting performance as a dimwitted and racist police officer in Martin McDonagh's darkly comic revenge drama "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".
"Never says a rude word". The short film played at the beginning of the ceremony poked fun at the mishap.
So how do you think Kimmel did?

Estimates suggest that there are 20,000 people held in custody in Iraq over IS ties, but there is no official number. Iraq has detained at least 560 women and 600 children identified as militants or relatives of ISIS militants.
"Oscar is the most beloved and respected man in Hollywood, and there's a very good reason why", he said. She receives a standing ovation, prompting her to joke that "you're all only standing because I fell and that was embarrassing".
Kimmel, known for his genial but deadpan delivery, got high marks as last year's Academy Awards host when then-newly elected Trump and his policies became a running gag.
"We don't make movies like Call Me By Your Name to make money".
He also praised leading women in Hollywood including Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig and Rachel Morrison, the first woman in the Oscars' 90-year history to be nominated for best cinematography.
The jet ski was likely a way for Kimmel to spotlight one of the earlier categories, since they're naturally going to spend less time on their speech than the big winners. The recent Golden Globes saw a blackout of sorts in support of the Me Too and Time's Up movements.
It's an hour before the stars start arriving on the Oscars red carpet, and final preparations are in full swing.
The 90 annual Academy Awards created a montage Sunday night to thank moviegoers for nine decades of films that seemed to go on for about 90 years itself.
