Guillermo del Toro wins Best Director Oscar for 'The Shape of Water'

90th Oscars Speech: THE SHAPE OF WATER; Guillermo del Toro and J. Miles Dale (BEST PICTURE)

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.

Elsewhere at the Oscars 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.

Guillermo del Toro's The 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.

"The Shape of Water" has made a big splash since its late release on December 1.
