Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water triumphed at the 90th annual Academy Awards, earning four Oscars in a night that — unlike last year — seemingly went off without a hitch.

With a leading 13 nominations, The Shape of Water took home the night’s top prizes, winning Best Picture, Best Director, Original Score, and Production Design. Accepting the Oscar for Best Picture, del Toro jokingly examined the envelope in a nod to last year’s Best Picture mix-up, before delivering a speech that championed diversity, storytelling, and the future of film.

“I was a kid enamored with movies, growing up in Mexico,” del Toro told the audience. “I thought this could never happen – it happens. I want to tell you, everyone that is dreaming of a parable, of using genre and fantasy to tell the stories about the things that are real in the world today, you can do it. This is a door. Kick it open and come in.”

After the chaos of last year’s Envelopegate, the 2018 Oscars made for a night of few surprises. Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk won big with three awards (sound editing, sound mixing, and film editing), while the acting categories largely went to the expected winners. Frances McDormand won Best Actress for her powerhouse performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, devoting her speech to all the female filmmakers and actresses in the room. A teary-eyed Gary Oldman won Best Actor for playing Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, while I, Tonya’s Allison Janney and Three Billboard’s Sam Rockwell triumphed in the supporting categories.

This year’s ceremony also saw several firsts: Jordan Peele made history as the first black screenwriter to win an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Get Out, while 90-year-old James Ivory became the oldest Oscar winner ever, winning Best Adapted Screenplay for Call Me By Your Name. Blade Runner 2049 cinematographer Roger Deakins also broke his decades-long losing streak to finally win Best Cinematography after 14 nominations.
