‘Shape of Water’ triumphs at Oscars
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Frances McDormand capped an awards season of accolades with the biggest one of all: an Oscar for best actress.
After sweeping trophies at the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, Independent Spirit and BAFTA ceremonies, McDormand won for "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri."
She played Mildred Hayes, a hardened woman seeking justice for her daughter's murder in the crime drama.
"Look around, ladies and gentlemen," Frances McDormand said during her best actress acceptance speech. "We all have stories to tell." She was referring to the female Oscar nominees in the Dolby Theatre, all of whom she'd asked to stand in unison. But it felt like she was also addressing the evening's broader vibe: Change, of many kinds, at the first post-Harvey Weinstein Academy Awards.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Latest on the 90th annual Academy Awards, which are being bestowed Sunday at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood (all times local):
The Cold War fantasy film "The Shape of Water" is the winner of the best picture Academy Award.
Director Guillermo del Toro's film has been considered one of the front-runners for the evening's top honor. It received a leading 13 nominations for this year's Oscars, and won four Oscars on Sunday night.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Frances McDormand capped her Oscar acceptance speech with a rousing call for inclusion riders, the general reaction was more "huh?" than "hooray!"
She was referring to using business contracts as a vehicle to further gender and racial diversity in Hollywood by adding a clause that mandates it.
McDormand, honored as best actress for "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri," raised the concept's profile in an instant Sunday night.
There was no #MeToo or Time's Up dress code on the Oscar red carpet. But the topic was, to no one's surprise, a major theme of the evening — from Jimmy Kimmel's monologue, to an emotional appearance by three Harvey Weinstein accusers, to Frances McDormand's calling all female nominees to rise with her in unison.
Kimmel got right to it, addressing both sexual misconduct and the gender pay gap in his opening speech.
List of winners for the 90th Academy Awards presented Sunday by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences:
Best Picture: "The Shape of Water."
Actor: Gary Oldman, "Darkest Hour."
Actress: Frances McDormand, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri."
Supporting Actor: Sam Rockwell, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri."
Supporting Actress: Allison Janney, "I, Tonya."
Directing: "The Shape of Water," Guillermo del Toro.
