Guillermo del Toro wins Best Director Oscar for 'The Shape of Water'
The film depicts the unsaid bond between a mute cleaning lady at a government lab and the sea creature, who has been captured from Amazon and kept for experiments in the lab. Del Toro's fascination with monsters since childhood is well-documented.

Guillermo del Toro'sThe Shape Of Water has picked up best picture in an Oscars ceremony that went according to plan and script.
"I am an immigrant", an emotional Del Toro said in collecting his first prize of the night, praising the power of filmmaking to "erase the line in the sand" between people of different countries and cultures. 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.
A mature, yet childlike love story, "The Shape of Water" is based on an idea Del Toro had as a boy when he first saw the 1950's cult creature classic "Creature of the Black Lagoon".
"The Shape of Water" has made a big splash since its late release on December 1.
Made for only 19 million USA dollars, the movie has grossed 126 million dollars worldwide to date.
