Disgraced mogul Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by scores of actresses. 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.
Gary Oldman and Frances McDormand won the main acting nods, also in line with expectations and betting odds, for their roles in Darkest Hour and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
McDormand continued: "Look around ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed".
Jimmy Kimmel, who returned to host the ceremony for the second year in a row, kicked off the night with a monologue that bounced between topics from last year's best picture snafu to Harvey Weinstein's scandal and Hollywood's movements to end sexual harassment and gender inequality within their industry. "That's the kind of man we need more of", he said. He became the third Mexican-born filmmaker to win the award. My home, my family and my Oscar, he said in the acceptance speech.

The Best Picture was presented by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, who had mistakenly named La La Land the Best Picture victor on stage after they were accidentally handed the envelope for Emma Stone's Best Actress award, rather than Moonlight's winning card.
