Mexican Guillermo del Toro wins Best Director and Best Picture Oscar

Mexican Guillermo del Toro wins Best Director and Best Picture Oscar

But the revolution has yet to arrive.

The video highlighted Greta Gerwig, the fifth woman to ever be nominated for best director, Yance Ford, the first transgender nominee for "Strong Island", Dee Rees, whose "Mudbound" scored a historic cinematographer nomination and the Pakistan-born Kumail Nanjiani, nominated for "The Big Sick".

Another actor from "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" Sam Rockwell was awarded Best Supporting Actor for the role of officer Jason Dixon.

Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor told Fox News viewers shouldn't be surprised that the show turned political and featured "divisive, left-wing politics" throughout the four-hour event.

"That did happen. but this is now that moment", she said, referencing films like "Wonder Woman".

"Thirty years ago when the business just started up there, the people up there began to learn from the best in the world and now they are some of the best in the world. What happened previous year was unfortunate".

The numbers are in, and this year's Academy Awards broadcast was a huge letdown in terms of total viewership.

"I stopped writing this movie about 20 times..."

It was the very definition of #oscarssowhite. "When we left the theater, we had that whole celebrity feel because there was everybody trying to talk to me as I was trying to get out". Guillermo del Toro won the category, making it the fourth time in five years that a Mexican director had won. He also highlighted all the ways "ceilings have been shattered", calling out the first female cinematographer nominee Rachel Morrison, "Get Out" director Jordan Peele, "Lady Bird" director Greta Gerwig and the crushing success of "Black Panther". That's roughly $163 million less than what "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" made in its opening weekend in the United States in December.

But the main problem keeping Get Out away from sequel territory? That's impossible to predict.

Last year, CTV drew an average of 5.5 million viewers, according Numeris. In 2016, it had moved to 91 percent and 76 percent, respectively, in those areas.

"Things are changing for the better". What ABC and the Academy need to do are attract more viewers who may share their point of view - there are plenty out there, but they couldn't really be bothered to watch.

A Fantastic Woman stars Daniela Vega as Marina, a young transgender waitress and singer who is forced to confront suspicion and contempt after the death of her older lover.

Ending abuse and harassment is the movement's fight, but so are the concepts of marginalization and underrepresentation.

In his opening, Kimmel touched on all the topics you'd expect - sexual harassment and the #MeToo movement, President Donald Trump, and the unprecedented screw-up at the Academy Awards a year ago when the wrong movie was announced as the victor of best picture.
