Oscars 2018: Gary Oldman named best actor for 'Darkest Hour'

Gary Oldman's Ex-Wife Well Done Academy Giving Oscars to 2 Alleged Abusers!

"I've lived in America for the longest time and I'm deeply grateful to the loves and the friendships I have made and the wonderful gifts it has given me". But for some entertainment fans, the 59-year-old actor's win marks the "Darkest Hour" of the #metoo era. This will also be his third nomination. Same year she tied the knot with Joel and in 1995 the two adopted a son from Paraguay, Pedro McDormand Coen. "I would rather get eaten by a great white shark than go through that marriage again".

Oldman had been favored to win this category throughout the run-up to Sunday's show, also winning the BAFTA and SAG Award, but claimed to ET that he didn't give his frontrunner status much consideration.

Darkest Hour focuses on May and June 1940 when Britain appeared on the brink of defeat in World War Two and Churchill faced deep divisions in his own government, the military and the monarchy. It comes after he won the Golden Globe, Critics' Choice Award, SAG, AACTA and AARP for the role.

His performance has been lauded by the reviewers in an otherwise slow film.

Day-Lewis is a three-time Oscar victor for "My Left Foot", "There Will Be Blood" and "Lincoln", while Washington is a nine-time nominee and two-time victor, for his lead role in "Training Day" and supporting work in "Glory".

But if you're determined to then, thanks to a combination of tips from in-the-know Hollywood types and a bit of educated guessing, here's my stab at who the big winners are going to be.

After a year full of fraught conversations about whether a person can separate the art from the artist, Oldman's past behaviour rang alarm bells for some viewers who saw his award as undermining the Time's Up movement. Oliver is the first true love of Elio's life.

So, just who is the wife of the projected Oscar victor?

Plummer was a late addition to the film, replacing Kevin Spacey, who was removed from the movie following allegations of sexual misconduct. Kaluuya in this film portrays Chris with all his fears and pretensions and delivers a memorable performance thanks to his brilliant facial expressions and dialogue delivery. It's a win-win for the family really.

Elsewhere, awards were spread around, recognizing first-timers, LGBT issues and films inspired by other cultures.Gay romance "Call Me by Your Name" won best adapted screenplay,"A Fantastic Woman", Chile's groundbreaking story about a transgender woman won best foreign language film; and Mexican-inspired "Coco" was named best animated feature.

Meanwhile, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" collected more trophies as Frances McDormand was honored with the Best Lead Actress prize later that night.
