The Shape of Water Wins Oscar 2018
From master storyteller, Guillermo del Toro, comes The Shape of Water - an other-worldly fable, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. A girl meets hot fish monster, falls in love, plots to break him out of a top-secret government research facility. On paper, Guillermo del Toro's fantasy-sci-fi-romance-thriller The Shape of Water looks a bit Splash-meets-ET â€" with the addition of an interspecies sex scene. The Shape of Water wins the Oscar for Best Picture at the 2018 Oscars. Watch the acceptance speech given by Guillermo del Toro and J. Miles Dale. â€œI was a kid enamored with movies, growing up in Mexico. I thought this could never happen â€" it happens," del Toro said in his acceptance speech. In addition he dedicated the award to â€œthe youth that is showing us how things are done â€" really, they are â€" in every country in the world. 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," he said. â€œThis is a door. Kick it open and come in."
