Oscars: Gary Oldman Wins Best Actor for 'Darkest Hour'

"What interested me was to show a side of him that was dynamic and energetic and amusing - he wasn't the curmudgeon we all assumed he was", Gary said. After an odd retro-style black and white opening segment and the first of many jokes about last year's PricewaterhouseCoopers mix-up, Kimmel prioritized addressing pressing issues in Hollywood and beyond - particularly workplace sexual harassment - over jokes about the nominees in the front rows of the Dolby Theater (though he made some of those too).

Gary Leonard Oldman was born in New Cross, London, on March 21, 1958 - that makes him 59.

Jordan Peele won Best Adapted screenplay for the racially tinged horror-thriller Get Out and James Ivory won Best Adapted Screenplay for the gay coming-of-age love story Call Me by Your Name.

Gary Oldman is now an Academy Award victor. "I owe this and so much more to so many", Oldman, who won his first Oscar, opened his speech.

Oldman's performance in "Darkest Hour" earned him such widespread accolades that he emerged as an early frontrunner for the Oscar, gathering a multitude of awards and honors throughout Hollywood's 2018 award season.

Finally, basketball legend Kobe Bryant took home an Academy Award for Best Animated Short for Dear Basketball, based on a poem he wrote about leaving the sport.

The other Best Actor nominees included Timothee Chalamet, Daniel Day-Lewis, Daniel Kaluuya, and Denzel Washington. I say to my mother, 'Thank you for your love and support, put the kettle on. The actor, previously, was nominated for the 2011 movie in a leading role.

But, what else do we know about the Oscar 2018 victor. and who is he married to?

The most infamous moment in Oscar history occurred at last year's Academy Awards telecast when chaos backstage led to the wrong envelope for the best-picture award was given to Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. This is her third major win for the film, after the Golden Globe for the Best Actress (Drama) and the BAFTA for Best Actress.

The 94%: How common is sexual misconduct in Hollywood? He received high marks for his freshman hosting effort previous year, highlighted by his casual handling of the end-of- ceremony flub that saw presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announcing "La La Land" as the victor of the best picture Oscar, when the prize actually went to "Moonlight". Jimmy Kimmel returned as host. He denies her claims.

The Shape Of Water picked up four of the 13 Oscars it was nominated for, including best director for Guillermo del Toro and the night's biggest prize, best picture.
