Canadian Content At The Oscars

Last night’s winner for best picture at the Oscars was heavy in Canadian content. “The Shape of Water” fared the best at Sunday night’s Academy Awards, winning a total of four golden statuettes – including best picture. Toronto producer J. Miles Dale shared the best-picture Oscar with Director Guillermo del Toro. Dale says he feels “ecstatic” about his win and harbours no ill feelings after his speech was drowned out by music. The film, shot in Toronto and Hamilton, also won Oscars for best original score, best director, and best production design for a team of Canadians.

In the meantime, top acting awards went to Gary Oldman for playing Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour,” and Frances McDormand for her role in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” (The Canadian Press)
