"The Shape of Water" was the big victor at the 90th Academy Awards. 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. "I thought this could never happen - it happens".
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.

Other winners included Pixar's "Coco" for best animated feature and "A Fantastic Woman", a love story from Chilean director Sebastian Lelio with a much-praised star turn from transgender actress Daniela Vega, in the foreign film category.
Jordan Peele won for his script to his horror sensation "Get Out", becoming the first African-American to win for best original screenplay.
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.
As they say, presenting is lovelier the second time around, Dunaway joked.
