'The Shape of Water' wins 4 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director

Here's the full list of 2018 Academy Awards winners, updated live.

Below are the nominees and winners (in bold) for each category.

The 90th annual Academy Awards take place tonight live from the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California. With a slew of welcomed, brand new Academy members (800 to be exact) making their voices heard in this year's voting process, comedian Jimmy Kimmel returns to host the festivities (along with a slew of other familiar faces: rumors have been circulating that Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are returning to present Best Picture as a mea culpa for last year).

While the Academy is still struggling for a more diverse inclusion of nominees, Jordan Peele and Greta Gerwig have a strong chance to take home much-deserved Oscar gold for their work on Get Out and Lady Bird, respectively, and this could be the year that NBA superstar Kobe Bryant actually takes home an Oscar (for his animated short, Dear Basketball).

If you're currently attending an Oscar house-party and wish to impress your friends, you'll definitely want to check out our post on which cameras were used on the Oscar-nominated films.

I expected Get Out to win best film for it's influence on our culture and subvertion of genre tropes. Though Shape of Water was a good film non the less. Anyhow, You Were Never Really Here wasn't nominated for a single thing, proofing that you can't really take the oscars seriously anymore.
